Council of International Neonatal Nurses

The Council of International Neonatal Nurses (TM) or COINN is an exciting organisation that represents nurses who specialise in the care of newborn infants and their families or have a special interest in this area of nursing.

  • COINN is part of the growing international community of nurses that represents a resource for nurses that want to form a national or local organisation, create guidelines for care or professional standards or just want advice on neonatal nursing issues.

  • COINN has both individual and National Neonatal Nursing Associations members including the National Neonatal Association (NNA) of the United Kingdom, Australian College of Neonatal Nurses (ACNN), Neonatal Nurses College of Aotearoa (NNCA) and the Canadian Association of Neonatal Nurses (CANN), who work together to address common care and professional issues.

  • COINN member associations host an International Neonatal Nursing conference every 3 years.

  • COINN is recognised as a global leader in neonatal nursing care and is committed to fostering excellence in neonatal nursing, promoting the development of neonatal nursing as a recognised global specialty, high standards of neonatal care, enhancing quality of care for neonates and their families, decreasing health disparities, and improving healthcare outcomes.
