Post registration neonatal education in England is currently delivered in a number of settings including Higher Education Institutes and clinical areas and is currently being reviewed in relation to setting a national standard by Health Education England (NHS, 2022). Neonatal courses require constant updating to ensure that they reflect changes in clinical practice and use the most up to date evidence base. A recent example of evidence based clinical innovation is Family Integrated Care. This article will focus on how including a parental perspective within a post registration neonatal nursing course delivered by a Higher Education Institute can support the integration of Family Integrated Care within neonatal education.

Family Integrated Care is a vital component of neonatal care, this needs to be mirrored within neonatal nurse education. Hearing a parent's perspective enables us to understand their requirements and experiences, this promotes improvements in neonatal care. Parental perspectives can be incorporated into education using a variety of methods that are suitable to both the student and parental requirements. Incorporating a parent's perspective is valuable for both the parents and the students. The impact on student knowledge is essential for their future roles.
