The Maternal Child Training Program was created in an effort to improve women’s and children’s health. Additionally, the purpose of this program is to empower nurses with education. Nursing is ever-evolving, therefore, nurses have a responsibility to keep current on evidence-based research.
Furthermore, inadequate quality of nursing care continues to impact maternal and fetal health in the Unites States. Poor nursing judgement and lack of education has consequently contributed to maternal adverse effects and mortality. In short, issues impacting maternal and fetal health include: 

-Deficiency of skill when responding to complications during pregnancy.-Excessive medical interventions that place infants at risk for arrest.
-Lack of cultural and ethnic care competence.
-Last but not least, lack of mental health screenings.

The Maternal Child Training Program will encompass all of these topics and more.

Our program will enhance your resume. Accordingly, this will increase your chances of obtaining a job in the maternal child health setting. New Grads should recognize that there is still so much to learn regarding maternal child care. Moreover, many nursing schools lack the time to cover the vast information that umbrellas this dual patient environment. Under those circumstances, ask yourself…

-Am I adept in teaching mothers how to breastfeed?
-Can I confidently interpret fetal heart strips?

On the other hand, current obstetrical nurses should assess their current capacities and determine if they need improvement. Current maternal child health nurses should ask themselves…

-What do my patient surveys reflect on my method of care?
-Do I need improvement?
-Am I aware of current evidence based research regarding obstetrical nursing?

Lastly, NEO’s Maternal Child Training Program will provide you the confidence and knowledge to embark in this awe-inspiring career.
