Nurses on the neonatal unit can apply to SSNAP for funding for external training courses that will support and develop their knowledge and education. SSNAP pay 80% of the course cost and to date have never rejected an application.
External training courses really vary but have recently included FINE training, attending the UNICEF baby friendly initiative and attending the annual REASON conference.
"Thank you SSNAP for enabling so many of us to go to REASON this year. The learning opportunities and subsequent improvements we can bring in to practice that has come from just 2 days is incredible"
The video below was created by a parent on the unit who has since gone on to fundraise for SSNAP.
