Many NICUs across the country have either developed small baby teams or are considering doing so. We’re thrilled to bring you two of the most sought-after leaders regarding this topic to the NANT 8 Pre-Conference.   

Developing an interdisciplinary approach is foundational to this presentation and to the success of any small baby team. This presentation will be a fabulous way to learn how to build that core team from the ground up (among many other things).  

Take a peek below at the timed agenda for this second Pre-Con Session. If your nurse-colleagues have never attended NANT, this may be a great time to bring them along.
