Who Are We?
NICU Parent Network is the premier US-based professional organization of NICU Parent Leaders who collectively represent the needs and best interests of NICU families. Together, we envision a world where every NICU family is an essential and integral member of their baby’s care team.
Authenticity is the bedrock of all enduring relationships, inspires trust in who we say we are and motivates others to join our collective efforts. Therefore, we will ensure our actions & interactions in all aspects of our operations are conducted with transparency, genuineness, and honesty.
Diversity & Inclusion
Being inclusive & diverse anchor all that we do; we respect a diversity of people & thought & provide equal access to a range of perspectives in all NPN forums, initiatives and decisions.
Long-term organizational sustainability is critical to our success. Therefore, all strategic decisions will focus on continually driving and enhancing our positive and long-term impact in the communities we serve.
Having a culture of integrity is crucial to establish a healthy organization and culture, so we will operate with professionalism and accountability for ourselves and our member organizations.
Being collaborative is an essential value within all our engagements. Therefore, we will actively work together & share relevant ideas, information & resources, both within the NPN network & with external partners, to achieve common goals and outcomes.
Family Integrated Care
is an approach to care in the NICU that fully involves the parents in all aspects of the baby’s care. The NPN believes this approach to the care of the infant and family should extend to all guidelines, research, policy, advocacy, education, and support where nothing is created for infants and their families without an equal partnership with NICU Parent Leaders.
