Residency: Nursery Rotations

Nursery Experience

In addition to our in-house NICU, EVMS Pediatric Residents rotate through two nurseries within Sentara Norfolk General Hospital (SNGH), a facility directly adjacent to CHKD.

Level 1 Nursery:  1-2 PL1's
  • Routine newborn care
Level 2 Nursery: 4 PL1's & 2 PL3 seniors
  • Specialized care

Residents attend high risk deliveries, support families and their new infants and participate in a number of hands-on newborn/preterm infant procedures. 

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.
