NAGANUMA, Masuco; CHAUD, Massae Noda  and  PINHEIRO, Eliana Moreira. Neonatal nursing: undergraduate nursing students' knowledge. Rev. Latino-Am. Enfermagem [online]. 1999, vol.7, n.4, pp.75-81. ISSN 1518-8345.

The present study was carried out at the Municipalities of São Paulo and Guarulhos with undergraduate nursing students and aimed at evaluating their knowledge regarding neonatal nursing and, if necessary, to contribute to the program reformulation. Thus, we would be able to improve nurses knowledge on the full-term new born care. In order to develop a structured questionnaire to be used as an instrument to measure the studied variable, aspects of the theoretical content related to the most common care procedures at the neonatal unit were selected. Authors found that students' theoretical knowledge on the theme was regular.

Keywords : maternal-child nursing; education.
