Program Information

School:Algonquin College
Faculty:Centre for Continuing and Online Learning
Field of Study:Maternal/Child Health and Neonatal Nurse/Nursing
Description:This Ontario College Graduate Certificate program builds on formal nursing education preparing registered nurses to practise within various areas of perinatal care. This dynamic and evolving area of nursing provides growth opportunities for those interested in the perinatal specialization.

Perinatal nursing includes the care of mother, newborn and family throughout the childbearing continuum from preconception to three months after birth. Students focus on family-centred and interprofessional collaborative approaches integrating current research evidence, best practices, specialty competencies, critical thinking and reflective practice in all program components. Through the use of theoretical, laboratory, simulation-based and clinical learning, students engage in a rich educational experience. The Perinatal Nursing program prepares nurses to write the Canadian Nurses Association (CNA) Certification exam in Perinatal Nursing. Completing this formal post-basic nursing certificate reduces the number of hours required to apply for CNA certification.
