    • Abstract:
      Because of the increasing constraints on the amount of time pediatric residents may train in the neonatal intensive care unit (NICU), concerns have been raised about the adequacy of their exposure to acute emergencies in the delivery room and their hands-on experience with sick neonates. Importantly, there are also concerns about the consistency and quality of supervision of PL-1 residents by second- and third-year residents, who themselves may not have had sufficient training in the NICU. To address these concerns, we have instituted an educational plan that links an experienced neonatal nurse practitioner (NNP) one-on-one with a PL-1 resident in a collaborative team. This plan differs from the traditional resident-to-resident supervisory model. An anonymous survey of our residents (n = 14) indicates enthusiastic endorsement of this new educational model. NNPs as first-line teachers in the NICU provide a new approach for residency training programs. [ABSTRACT FROM AUTHOR]
