Obstetrical Nursing


Exploration of the nursing care of clients experiencing a normal pregnancy or a pregnancy at risk is explored through lecture, discussion, and clinical experiences. Critical thinking skills are utilized while focusing on health promotion and management of risk factors in client care situations during the prenatal, intrapartum, and postpartum and neonatal periods.
