Fetal Monitoring

  1. I appreciate the advice of those that suggested we new L&D nurses attend a fetal monitoring workshop. We had one at our hospital this week and I was unable to go because the AWHONN fetal monitoring course requires that you have 6 months experience before taking it.

    My question related to this is : Can I document reactive/nonreactive NST's and LTV or do I need someone else to do that?

    Once trained by a perceptor whereby you understand, you SHOULD be able to document like anyone else there. Check policies regarding orientation and ask your NM for specifics. Hang in there and good luck.
