Hello, I am Debra Neiman, RN BSN.

I have worked in Neonatal Care, at Beauregard Memorial Hospital, DeRidder for over four years. My college experience at Louisiana State University at Alexandria, resulted in a great deal of research papers, which are gathering dust in my office. My curriculum at Northwestern State University also added to this wealth of information.

I hereby begin this series to provide a way to get this information to those in the nursing field and any other person with a passing interest in these subjects.

Feel free to reference of use this information in your practice. However, please respect my Copyright and do not "BORROW" for your HOMEWORK assignments.
