Nurses' Attitudes and Beliefs on Family-Centered Care Practices in the NICU

The NICU is a complex, technology-driven environment where nurses have many tasks to accomplish each day to meet the physiologic needs of critically ill infants who require advanced care. Parent-infant relationships are influenced by interactions during these early-life experiences. The purpose of this study is to examine beliefs and perceptions of implementing family-centered care in the NICU.
