Als emphasized the neonatal infants? behavior were all meaningful. Relevant researches verified the developmental outcome of preterm infant were influenced by medical environment and the way of care. A questionnaire was constructed to evaluate the knowledge, attitude and competence concerning NIDCAP. The Cronbach' s alpha of attitude, competence, job satisfactions domain were 0.76, 0.88, 0.87. It was mailed to all newborn units taking care of premature infants in Taiwan. Two hundred ninety respondents from 24 hospitals had completed the questionnaire. The results showed that the mean score of knowledge was 11.95 ( the highest score was 20), the mean score of attitude was 2.92 (the lowest score was 1, the highest score was 4), and the mean score of competence was 3.68 (the lowest score was 1, the highest score was 5). This score revealed that the staff members did not have enough knowledge about NIDCAP, a little positive toward NIDCAP, and had some confidence .The staff members who worked at medical centers got higher score on knowledge and had more positive attitude, compared with whom worked at the regional hospitals ( F = 20.86, 10.08, p<.01). This study also showed that the staff members who had higher score on knowledge of NIDCAP, competence and job satisfactions, were more positive toward NIDCAP (t = 5.75, p<.001, R2 = 26.1%). There is need to provide more training about NIDCAP to improve the knowledge and positive attitude of staff members working with premature infants.
