    Here are a few to get you started. Most sites, unfortunately, are either for parents or by parents. It's difficult IMO to find sites dedicated solely to neonatal/NICU nursing. Naturally, as the co-mod of our very own allnurses.com Neonatal Intensive Care forum (plugplugplug!), I put that link first! It is the only, and largest, forum that I know of for neonatal nurses. You can find a lot of preemie sites put up by parents on the internet with photos and stories about their times in the NICU by simply typing in "Preemie sites" or "websites about preemies" in your search engine. You'd be surprised how thorough some of them are!

    Allnurses.com NICU forum:
    http://allnurses.com/forums/forumdis...?s=&forumid=33

    Preemie-L forum (also an email "list" you can sign up for):
    http://groups.yahoo.com/group/preemie-list/

    Another link:
    http://www.premature-infant.com/

    Baby Talk Magazine (you and your students can get a free subscription; this is the address to the subscription form, or you can call them and get a "list" to sign people up if they're interested):
    http://subs.timeinc.net/BY/by_newbiz...ience_id=49301

    American Baby magazine (also free, same as above; these aren't just for preemies, but they're great resources IMO):
    https://secure.americanbaby.com/bhg/...requestid=1327

    American Baby site (lots of good newborn and preemie info here): http://www.americanbaby.com/ab/categ.../data/AB18.xml

    FAQ for parents of preemies (nice and thorough): http://www.pediatrics.wisc.edu/child...s_of_preemies/

    NICU-web (for MD's and nurses; lots of links):
    http://neonatal.peds.washington.edu/

    The March of Dimes (focuses on preventing premature birth and birth defects; lots of great statistics, free stuff you can order if you want, have a store with more great stuff, etc.):
    http://www.marchofdimes.com/

    It must be maternal/child time! You're a teacher, right? Hope these help.
