Meet neonatal nurse Leslie!

Leslie’s newborn screening (NBS) experience started when she was working as a unit secretary at a birthing hospital. She was still in nursing school. Her job was to complete the NBS filter cards for every newborn. A few years later, Leslie finished nursing school and started working at a neonatal intensive care unit (NICU). In her previous job, Leslie had the opportunity to learn about the importance of completing the filter paper cards correctly. In her new role, she learned about the technical aspects of collecting a newborn screen. To learn more about a nurses’ role in NBS, please comment below!
