30 Years—Starting Out, Attaining and Maintaining Excellence, New Beginnings
AT THE BEGINNING OF 1981, Neonatal Network® was a twinkle in the eye of my husband, Charles (Chuck) Rait. Chuck felt that neonatal nurses needed a resource that specifically met their needs in the new, evolving specialty of neonatal nursing. My most vivid memory of the genesis of the undertaking that would result in this journal was Chuck going to the library at the University of California, San Francisco, and hand writing, on large, yellow legal pads, the names of all of the hospitals in the country that had neonatal intensive care nurseries. I, then, typed out the labels for 44 fliers with subscription information on them to 1,000 neonatal units. Our hope was that those 44,000 fliers would reach a receptive audience of neonatal nurses who knew that they needed more nursing information to provide the best care they possibly could.
