Twenty years ago, the NIDCAP Federation International (NFI) was founded as a membership and educational certifying non-profit organization (501c3)

Our international community has now grown to include over 3,000 clinicians, educators, researchers, families and students

The NFI continues to evolve, and to oversee, develop and support NIDCAP and its caregiving and training approach

Our anniversary wishes for the year include
increasing our learning opportunities
and growing our membership

We’re celebrating all year, so please check back for our special offerings

Giving Tuesday is November 30th, also the last day of Prematurity Awareness Month. Please join us in raising money for the NFI so that we may further our mission to bring the NIDCAP practice to more hospitals worldwide and encourage healthy neurodevelopment for all babies.

In honor of our 20th Anniversary, we hope to raise $20,000.
