The primary role of our outreach nurses is to provide education for perinatal caregivers. Courses are offered based upon the input from our annual needs assessment disseminated to each hospital in the region.

Some of the courses we provide include:

  • Core neonatal competencies (NRP, STABLE)
  • Core OB competencies (fetal monitoring: basic through advanced) 
  • Recognition and management of complications
  • Stabilization for transport
  • Updates and reviews of standards of care

We also assist with clinical orientation for new or seasoned nursing staff: 

  • Skill and competency reviews at region hospitals
  • Emergency drills (mega codes, shoulder dystocia, placental abruption...)
  • Clinical preceptorships on Palmetto Health Richland units
  • Specific education requests
