Spotlight on Low Risk Neonatal Intensive Care Nursing October 3, 2019

The Low Risk Neonatal Intensive Care Nursing certification focuses on the care of the Level II neonate, meeting the needs of Level II Neonatal ICU nurses.

In 2018, the Low Risk Neonatal Nursing certification became the Low Risk Neonatal Intensive Care Nursing certification. This change was made after recommendations from the Low Risk Neonatal (LRN) Content Team and content validation studies done with those certified in LRN, when It was found that the majority of nurses taking the LRN exam or already certified in LRN are working in Level II Neonatal Units.

The Low Risk Neonatal Intensive Care Nursing certification focuses more on Level II care of the neonate, than its original focus of normal newborn management and risk assessment.
