Master degrees in Neonatal Care allow postgraduates to specialise in caring for premature or ill newborn babies, equipping them with the techniques to support and care for an infant’s family.
Related subjects include Neonatal Nursing and Neonatal Medicine. Entry requirements typically include an undergraduate degree in an appropriate subject such as Nursing, Midwifery or Medicine.
Courses in this field aim to build your understanding and skills in managing the risks associated with early labour. This includes learning how to assist with planned and emergency caesarean sections, and manage the symptoms of pre-eclampsia.
You’ll learn about essential techniques for supporting the life of mother and baby during a premature birth, including administering medications, providing ventilator support, resuscitation and light therapy for conditions like jaundice.
Placements are usually a key component of these courses, and will enable you to gain experience of working in a fast-paced environment.
Neonatal nurses typically work the intensive care unit of a hospital, but may also be required within emergency rooms, delivery rooms and special clinics.
