NEONATOLOGY IS A RELATIVELY NEW MEDICAL SPECIALITY that arose from the recognition that neonates were different from adults and other pediatric patients. The recognition of these differences between patients led, in part, to the development of perinatology and neonatology programs across the globe. As scientific knowledge and medical education evolved, so too did the recognition that nurses played an essential role in the care of high-risk infants. No longer restricted to Florence Nightingale's initial advocacy for a nurturing environment only, the profession of nursing extends into areas of practice, education, mentorship, health advocacy, and research.
