The Oklahoma Perinatal Nurses Forum holds a Perinatal Boot Camp twice a year – winter and summer.
This series is designed to provide high quality, cost effective, didactic education to nurses (recent graduates and licensed nurses) who are new to the field of Obstetric and Newborn Nursing. It is intended to augment the hospital clinical orientation to the obstetrical and newborn units. Basic course content includes pathophysiology, assessment, medical and nursing therapeutics and evaluation of nursing care. A precepted perinatal clinical experience on non-class days is encouraged for the successful application of class content. Competency of knowledge and skills is to be determined by participant’s facility.
