Abstract

Findings from a spring 2013 survey of neonatal nurse practitioner (NNP) program directors are presented and concerning trends identified. Implications of these findings, in combination with other external factors influencing the supply/demand ratio on the stability of the NNP workforce nationwide, are explored. Present and future NNP workforce demands in relation to the educational programs available to prepare nurses for NNP practice are examined. Finally, discussion focuses on the politics and pragmatics of sustaining the NNP role for posterity.
