Learning Outcomes

As a healthcare practitioner, you are expected to follow professional standards of practice throughout all SN programs and courses.

​In this course, learners will have opportunities to use the processes of critical thinking, systematic inquiry, communication, collaboration, leadership, and professionalism.

  • Integrate knowledge of fetal growth, development, circulation, and wellbeing into the interpretation of antenatal/intrapartum nursing assessments, care and decision-making processes.
  • Illustrate how nursing assessments, antenatal screenings, and specialized care, within the low-risk childbearing experience, influence the promotion of healthy outcomes.
  • Reflect on the impact of various cultural, societal, and contextual influences on the woman's/pregnant person's and their family's health outcomes throughout the childbearing experience.
  • Apply foundational Perinatal and Neonatal nursing knowledge to the care of women/pregnant people and families throughout low-risk pregnancies and childbirths to determine specialized care, provide education, and promote healthy outcomes.
  • Describe the nurse's role in leveraging their specialty knowledge to promote, protect and support the physiologic processes of labour, birth, postpartum, and the neonatal transition to extrauterine life.
  • Utilize knowledge of infant behaviour, vulnerability, and maternal/neonatal physiological changes in the postpartum period to determine specialized care.
  • Apply foundational Perinatal and Neonatal nursing knowledge to the care of healthy dyads and families during low-risk postpartum to determine specialized care, provide education, and promote healthy outcomes.
  • Summarize the role of the nurse in promoting, protecting, and supporting positive infant feeding experiences.
  • Reflect on your own personal beliefs, values, and biases in the context of nursing care that promotes, protects, and supports positive experiences for families.
  • Demonstrate a working knowledge of resources and frameworks that can aid in assessment, clinical decision-making, and communication within Perinatal and Neonatal nursing practice.
