Abstract

Universal newborn hearing screening and follow-up is an important detection and intervention program promoting childhood development and the acquisition of fundamental language, social, and cognitive skills. These skills provide the basis for later success in school and in society. Nursing has an important role to play in advocating for newborn hearing screening and in supporting families throughout the screening process.
