Brought to you by the National Association of Neonatal Nurses, NANNcast will provide listeners with advice, tips, and expertise to better inform neonatal nurses, industry partners, and families of NICU patients.
International Neonatal Consortium
The International Neonatal Consortium (INC) is a global collaboration formed to forge a predictable regulatory path for evaluating the safety and effectiveness of therapies for neonates. Wakako Eklund, NNP, NANN member, and INC liaison, joins Jill Beck to discuss how nurses can promote safe NICU research.

The culture of research communication in neonatal intensive care units: key stakeholder perspectives
Empowering NICU Parents
Research shows that parents whose babies are hospitalized in the NICU experience trauma, stress, and the loss of their role as primary caregiver due to their time in the NICU. NICU nurses play a crucial role in providing family-centered care to support and empower NICU parents.
Nicole Nyberg is a neonatal nurse practitioner and the founder of Empowering NICU Parents, an organization that provides educational resources for parents with babies in the NICU. With her unique perspective as an NNP who also had a child in the NICU, she shares simple, yet impactful ways to engage and empower parents during their baby's NICU stay.

Safe Staffing in the NICU
Understaffing puts patients at increased risk of missed or rationed care, medical incidents, disparities of care, and morbidity and mortality. In September 2021, NANN released the RN Staffing in the NICU position statement with staffing recommendations based on the acuity of the population served. Dr. Lori Armstrong and Karen Kopischke, the authors of the position statement, join Jill Beck on NANNcast to breakdown the position statement and share how nurses can advocate for safe staffing in their units.

NANNcast host Jill Beck and neonatal nurse and health equity leader Shelly Frisco discuss the detail behind the health disparity data, the impact of these inequities on mother and baby outcomes, and steps all neonatal nurses can take to advocate for and create change.

Nurse Scientists: A Multidisciplinary Approach to Research
Tiffany Moore returns to NANNcast for another research series episode! Tiffany, Jill Beck, Dr. Jenene Craig, and Dr. Sue Hall come together on this episode to explore how interdisciplinary research teams function in the NICU. They share their approach to gathering a multidisciplinary team, setting goals for each discipline, and working together to achieve the desired outcomes and provide the best care.
Love love love it!
This is one of my favorite podcasts. Host Jill Beck is well prepared to ask insightful questions of her guests who are genuinely interesting leaders/researchers/educators in NICU. Even though I’ve been a bedside NICU nurse for 33 years, I’ve learned so much about NICU and also about NANN from NANNcast.
So informational for a NICU nurse looking to supplement her knowledge about the neonatal world!
Truly enjoying this podcast. A must for every NICU nurse. Learning so much. Feels like a fun NICU conference and in this time of Covid - this podcast is truly helpful. I like to listen to it before work and try and implement what I’ve learned that shift. Please keep it coming.
