Prerequisite: Permission of faculty, N543 and N566

Credits: 6

The purpose of the antepartum course is to prepare the nurse-midwifery/WHNP student to begin to function in the nurse-midwifery/WHNP role. Students manage the antepartum course of essentially healthy women while beginning to assess for deviation from normal, which may result in collaboration or referral. Psychosocial and cultural aspects of pregnancy within the family structure will be applied to each topic. Issues of health enhancement, nutrition, exercise and sexuality will be stressed.
