This is a question moms frequently ask us so here is the deal. Despite having the word “nurse” in their title, baby nurses are typically not Registered Nurses, or “RNs”. There are some baby nurses who are Registered Nurses or have received other training like a Licensed Vocational Nurse (LVN) or a Licensed Practical Nurse (LPN), but in many cases a baby nurse does not have a medical background.
Some baby nurses are Certified Infant Care Specialists and have received more formal training on infant care. Other Baby Nurses simply have years of experience behind them, having cared for many newborns.
