AWHONN Courses

Indeed, AWHONN courses are scarce in Southern California. But Labor and Delivery nurses don’t Fret! Nurses Educational Opportunities proudly offers AWHONN Fetal Heart Monitoring certification courses on a monthly basis.

Many physiologic changes occur during labor which results in the delivery of a neonate. Therefore, the gravid patient and her unborn infant may be monitored with ultrasound or electronic maternal and fetal heart monitors. Both require skill to interpret. In addition, The Labor and Delivery nurse must be able to identify risk factors that will impact the delivery of the fetus. Additionally, the nurse must be able to use team dynamics with communication and documentation.

The Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN) is the foremost nursing authority for the promotion of Fetal Heart Monitoring. Most notably, AWHONN advances the healthcare of women and newborns through advocacy; research; and the creation of high-quality, evidence-based standards of care.

Furthermore, AWHONN has long claimed to be the “Gold Standard” of Fetal Heart Monitoring education. Yet, in the past 2 years other Fetal Heart Monitoring courses have emerged. Interestingly, various hospitals have endorsed these “start-ups.” Nevertheless, most nurses have denounced these courses. Obstetrical nurses prefer a concise, informative course that enhances their knowledge in caring for the adversities of the laboring woman.

Nurses Educational Opportunities believes in AWHONN’s mission, vision and diversity statement. We strive to empower nurses with education. For this reason, we have chosen collaborate with experienced and sanctioned AWHONN Instructors to improve the quality of care for the women of our communities. By way of AWHONN’s Advanced and Intermediate  fetal monitoring courses we believe that cultural competence in Orange County and San Diego can be greatly improved.
