Educational opportunities available for MCH nurses
October 7, 2013
Beginning in September 2013, nurses have the opportunity to attend conferences at the MCH campus as well as simulations and workshops at The Ohio State University campus. OSUWMC has a Clinical Skills Education and Assessment Center that recently expanded by 18,000 square feet.
"As it pertains to education, academic medical centers are innovators, using advanced technology and techniques to train medical students, physicians and other health care professions," said Michael Browning, Interim CEO at MCH. "The Center at OSUWMC provides trainees a low-risk and safe learning environment to practice their technical skills on procedure-based simulators."
One class that is offered is a two week observation experience at OSUWMC for obstetric nurses. Each participant will observe all aspects of the birthing process at a higher volume facility, including labor and delivery, antepartum and normal newborn nursery.
Another available class at OSUWMC is Failure to Rescue, a four hour simulation open to all clinical staff. Participants in this session will observe patient simulator manikins and identify the subtle signs and signals that are present before an impending health crisis. During this simulation experience, each nurse will also have the opportunity to further develop their decision-making and team-working skills.
Other sessions include:
