Registered Nurse, Certified in Neonatal Intensive Care (RNC-NIC) is the US designation for a neonatal intensive care nurse who has earned nursing board certification. This exam is one of the core certification exams offered by the National Certification Corporation (NCC).[1]

The organization's other core certifications include Low Risk Neonatal (RNC-LRN), Maternal Newborn Nursing (RNC-MNN) and Inpatient Obstetrics (RNC-OB) for nurses in those related specialties.[1]

Neonatal nursing is a specialty where the nurses care for newborn babies who need critical care. This may include newborns who are very sick, need immediate surgery, or have birth defects. Neonatal nurses will provide care around the clock to these infants. [2]
