    AWHONN's Perinatal Nursing 3rd edition is a great resource for the unit, and it is also a wonderful, wonderful book to study for the RNC exam.

    I also like the Susan Martin Tucker handbood of fetal monitoring - this was my little Bible when I first started Labor and Delivery.

    I'd like to add a shoutout to another, slightly different book. For anyone interested in the history of nursing and the changes to midwifery policies, this is a must read.
    Sandra Lee Barney
    Authorized to Heal: Gender, Class, and the Transformation of Medicine in Appalachia.
    It's a great social history which discusses the roots of tension between physicians, nurses, midwives, and public health practitioners. Interestingly enough, the arguments against public health in the early 20th Century are the same arguments that we are hearing today against social medicine!

    who: midwifery education modules

    the six modules aim to help skilled practitioners think critically and make effective decisions on the basis of solid knowledge and understanding of these complications. when using the modules for basic midwifery programmes, it is understood that students should already be competent in most of the basic skills such as measuring blood pressure, performing a vaginal examination, conducting a normal delivery and prevention of infection.
    the modules were released in 1996 and have now been updated in line with recent evidence and the who clinical guidelines. each module can be taught independently of the other modules. it is however advisable to work through all of them.
    module 1: foundation module [pdf 1.47mb]

    module 2: managing eclampsia [pdf 0.78mb]

    module 3: managing incomplete abortion [pdf 3.6mb]

    module 4: managing prolonged and obstructed labour [pdf 4.74mb]

    module 5: managing postpartum haemorrhage [pdf 1.88mb]

    module 6: managing puerperal sepsis [pdf 0.84mb]

    It's been my experience that you will have a maternal-newborn section during your nursing program. To specialize, you can studdy up on areas of interest, and there are specialty courses out there. I think the majority of the specialty courses such as NRP, STABLE, Fetal monitoring, ALSO are best understood after a little hands-on experience in the unit of your interest.

    I recommend The Disabled Woman's Guide to Pregnancy and Birth, by Joyce Rodgers--a great read, with insights for an often-overlooked patient population.

    Another good newborn one is "Almost Home". It is written by a neonatologist about NICU and is a collection of chronologically organized short stories that do a good job both entertaining, informing, and portraying changes in NICU care over time.
