ABSTRACTThe validation of specific competences --identified by experts in a previous study--of the nursing professionals in charge of the severely ill neonate care was carried out in the neonate intensive care units. Reason why, a questionnaire was carried out to 38 experts and 108 nursing professionals of the neonatology services in Santiago de Cuba and "Enrique Cabrera" Teaching General Hospital from Havana, during 2017 who expressed their opinion to consider the established categories on this respect. The 12 competences identified and proposed by the experts to be developed in the neonate intensive care units, are in correspondence with the international tendencies, protocols and indications of Maternal and Child Health National Management of the Public Health Ministry, as for knowledge, skills, behaviors, attitudes, aptitudes and motivations of nursing professionals for the severely and critically ill neonate care.
