Residency: Nursery Rotations

Nursery Experience

Directly adjacent to CHKD lies Sentara Norfolk General Hospital (SNGH), where residents rotate through two nurseries.

Level 1 Nursery:  1-2 interns
  • General care
Level 2 Nursery: 4 interns, 2 PL3 seniors
  • Specialized care

Residents attend high risk deliveries, support mothers and their new infants, and participate in a number of procedures as they learn the exciting aspects of care of the newborn and preterm infant.

Ranked among the top 50 Hospitals by US News and World Reports, SNGH is the primary hospital for Norfolk's Maternal Fetal Medicine Practice and is located on the same campus as the Jones Institute for Reproductive Medicine, the nation's pioneering institution of In Vitro Fertilization.
