Research Surveys

Admission Criteria for Late Preterm Infants

This survey is being conducted by NANN Member Barbara Snapp.

Late preterm infants have been classified as a group of infants who give the initial impression of being healthy and mature but who may suffer from significant morbidities. Although routinely studied as a single entity, within these 3 weeks of gestational age, a varying hospital course can be expected. You can anonymously share your institution's admission criteria for late preterm infants in this survey, which should take less than 3 minutes to complete.
