Refining Neurobehavioral Assessment of the High-Risk Infant Using the NICU Network Neurobehavioral Scale
Date of Original Version
Nurses caring for high-risk infants use advanced assessment skills to identify the nature of infant instability and to assure timely intervention. The NICU Network Neurobehavioral Scale (NNNS) is a comprehensive assessment of neurological integrity and behavioral function of infants at risk. Research evidence supports its validity and reliability for clinical and research use. The NNNS offers nurses a neurobehavioral assessment especially suited to high-risk and premature infants. © 2012 AWHONN, the Association of Women's Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses.
