Pre-requisites: Must be a qualified health care practitioner who is working within the context of neonatal care.

Aims/Description: This unit is designed to provide neonatal practitioners with relevant experience the opportunity to undertake further study towards becoming an advanced neonatal nurse practitioner. Completion of this unit will equip the practitioner with the relevant underpinning bioscience knowledge and the skills needed to inform judgements and decisions about clinical practice. This will enable them to become proactive in the management and delivery of safe evidence based care. This can also be accessed as a stand-alone unit to enable a range of practitioners to update their knowledge of neonatal bioscience in practice.
