The Association of Women's Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses (AWHONN) on Sept. 15 announced a complimentary Webinar series for nurses. Sponsored in part through an educational grant from Johnson & Johnson Consumer Companies, Inc. and Medela, the series will focus on nursing care for newborns.
Carolyn Lund, MS, RN, FAAN, an expert in neonatal skin care will lead the first hour long Webinar on Tuesday, Sept. 16 at 1 p.m. EDT.
Nurses are eligible for free continuing nursing education (CNE) credit, and will learn about various aspects of neonatal skin care including bathing, disinfectants, cord care, adhesives, diaper dermatitis, IV infiltrates and more.
"For those nurses watching as a group, only one person needs to register and all nurses attending are eligible for CNE," said Karen Peddicord, PhD, RNC, AWHONN Interim Executive Director.
Subsequent AWHONN Webinar sessions, also providing complimentary CNE, include:
