Utilizing NICHD terminology, this two-day course focuses on the application of essential fetal heart monitoring knowledge and skills in intrapartum nursing practice.

Completion of written exams and skills evaluations are required for successfully completing the program and earning contact hours. Resource book is necessary for this course and can be borrowed from your OB unit. Preparation in advance by participants is necessary.
