Who would have thought just over 10 years ago that almost no one had heard the term “ Newborn Care Specialist” and yet within the last year we have released the INA Newborn Care Specialist Credential Exam and now, a new tool for agencies!

The Newborn Care Specialist Basic Skills Assessment is HERE!

NCS Agencies and Educators, are you looking for a way to assess a candidate’s overall skill level before placing them in a home with a newborn?

Are you a NCS that wants to set yourself apart from the large number of caregivers entering the field?

The INA NCS Basic Skills Assessment is a 30 minute, timed 40-multiple-choice question quiz that will check your essential knowledge when it comes to the care and safety of a newborn. It will test your understanding of newborn:

Physical Development
Emotional Development
Sleep Needs
General Care
