Newborn (Nursing)

by Jacquelyn McMillian-Bohler, PhD, CNM

The newborn period spans from a few seconds to 30 days of life. During this time, there are a lot of physiological and anatomical changes that occur. Therefore, newborns require vastly different care compared to larger kids and adults.

It’s important to know how to care for a newborn, recognize normal changes in this patient population, and rescue a newborn patient should they have difficulties. The first step in this newborn nursing course will be learning how to assess these babies, test for normal reflexes, recognize normal vital signs, and identify important newborn measurements. Additional content will cover perinatal loss and newborn nutrition.

This information is foundational and serves as a launching point for pediatric nursing.
