This 5-week program trains Registered Nurses, at all levels of experience, to provide skilled patient-centered care in the L&D Operating Room

A collaborative academic-clinical practice partnership training program works together with your hospital to provide nurses with essential surgical competencies in the Labor and Delivery area.
