    • Neonatal Community Transition Nurse is a registered nurse that has a specialist qualification in caring for neonates. This is termed Qualified in Specialty (QIS). They are qualified paediatric trained and work within the Children's Community Nursing Team and occasionally on the Special Care Unit.

      • Plan and support a seamless discharge from NNU at the Princess Elizabeth Hospital (PEH), Guernsey.
