Hi Everyone,

I haven't posted in a really long time. I've been really busy. I am currently in Graduate school for MSN Nurse Educator. I am about to start doing research on an evidence based project and introducing and implementing a change in practice in the NICU.

I am just looking for ideas and thoughts. A co-worker last year introduced our unit to a Neonatal Skin Assessement Tool which has been really helpful and great in our unit.

I spoke to our clinical education coordinator for thoughts and ideas. She suggested that I try to get in touch with other NICUs to see what changes in practice, assessment, protocols etc. that have been recently implemented and what they have liked or not liked.

I think it will just give me a good idea on where to start.

I have about 8-10 weeks before I really start diving into the heart of it.. but being the type A person I am, I want to get started as soon as possible so that I can find a great topic and quality research so that I can truly benefit our unit.

I don't want to do anything that is already in the works in our unit which is a lighting study and feeding study. Thank you in advance for any ideas you may be able to offer!
