Raising the Standard: Practice Competencies for the Neonatal Therapist

By Sue Ludwig

Therapists have been reinventing NICU-related competencies for decades. Well, those days are finally over!

Practice Competencies for the Neonatal Therapist is a foundational, dynamic set of competencies established by the NANT Professional Collaborative (NPC) for neonatal therapists (OT, PT, SLP) and their mentors in Level II-IV NICUs.

It is peer-reviewed, interprofessional, and divided into three sections: Fundamental Knowledge, Core Competencies, and Interventions, each prefaced with recommendations and directions for the intended use. It includes a Competency Summary section for departmental and HR purposes.

We hope you get hours back in your schedule while raising the level of competency and care in the NICU. It’s exciting to consider the trajectory of this specialty with increased levels of consistency, competency, quality, and confidence.
