The Council of International Neonatal Nurses, Inc or COINN is an exciting organization that represents nurses who specialize in the care of newborn infants and their families or have a special interest in this area of nursing. COINN (Council of International Neonatal Nurses, Inc), pronounced just like the money-currency or a coin – acts much like money as a method of exchange of information among countries. COINN (Council of International Neonatal Nurses, Inc) is part of the growing international community of nurses that represents a resource for nurses that want to form a national or local organization, create guidelines for care or professional standards or just want advice on neonatal nursing issues.
