NANN and the Alliance for Global Neonatal Nursing

The Alliance for Global Neonatal Nursing (ALIGNN) is a partnership between NANN; the Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses; the Academy of Neonatal Nursing; the Council of International Neonatal Nurses; and Caring for Hawaii Neonates. ALIGNN advocates for improving neonatal care by providing essential education and resources to nurses around the world. Driven by passion for newborns and their families, we will fill gaps in nursing education around neonatal care, act as a rapid response team for advocacy issues, and build on the combined strengths of each organization to disseminate information, education, and products.

Stay tuned to NANN for ALIGNN updates as they become available.
