Memphis hospitals face a shortage of neonatologists but the University of Tennessee Health Science Center's College of Nursing hopes to help alleviate it by creating a pediatric nurse practitioner option in its Doctor of Nursing Practice Program and reopening admission to its Neonatal Nurse Practitioner doctoral program. Ramasubbareddy Dhanireddy, NICU medical director at Le Bonheur Children's Hospital, welcomed the help and said changes in neonatology residency programs and rotations mean neonatologist residents are not able to provide all of the care premature and sick infants need.
