Target Audience: 
New obstetric/post-partum/newborn nurses, obstetric nurses who want to refresh/update their knowledge, nurses who are considering working in a rural healthcare obstetrics unit

Program Description: 

Are you a new nurse to obstetrics (OB)? Is OB nursing something you are considering in your future? Have you been working in OB for a while but just don’t feel comfortable yet? Are you an OB nurse who hasn’t dealt with an OB emergency in a while? If you answered yes to one or more of these questions, then this OB Boot Camp is designed just for you. During this week-long experience we will explore all aspects of working in a rural healthcare obstetrics unit. Throughout this interactive boot camp, the participants will be engaged in simulated (hands-on) learning opportunities, including case study discussions, role playing effective communication/conflict management techniques, OB and newborn assessments/emergencies and reviewing of priority interventions for various OB situations. This comprehensive course is designed to provide the obstetrics nurse with a solid foundation from the core principles and standards of care and practice perspective, in hopes of helping get the new nurse ready to practice solo quicker in the unit. For more information on the planned boot camp take a look at the objectives. You do not want to miss this opportunity! Sign up today as space is limited.
