The Newborn Intensive Care Unit, part of the Perinatal Institute at Cincinnati Children’s, is one of the largest, most sophisticated Level IV intensive care units for newborns in the United States. We provide the highest level of medical care to premature and critically ill newborns.
As a large academic institution, our neonatologists are able to work closely with multiple subspecialists who offer their expertise in areas that include cardiology, fetal and neonatal surgery, neurology, pulmonology and urology.
Cincinnati Children’s NICU has equipment and staff to provide the highest level of care for your newborn patients:
The orientation program for new RNs in the NICU is 16 to 20 weeks. We hire experienced nurses as well as new graduate nurses. Two of those weeks of orientation are dedicated to class time while the rest is spent working closely with a preceptor. Orientation education covers everything from hands-on skills to developmental care of the neonate.
In addition to RN orientation, the education department develops and maintains competencies for existing staff. The education department consists of two full-time educators who work in collaboration with multiple disciplines to ensure that staff are kept up to date with the information they need to provide high-quality and safe care to our delicate patients.
