For those not needing/desiring NRP skills training:
Do you have questions about NARM’s Portfolio Evaluation Process (PEP)? We will have 1-2 new CPMs available for a Q & A time! Bring your notebooks and ideas to share with each other!
Basic Physical Exam will be taught by 2 Physician’s Assistants: Tricia McGillis, MPAS PAC and Amanda Nixon, MPAS PAC, of Artesian Springs Medical Center in Marion, MI. They have been comfortably working with midwives for many years and offer their patients a combination of allopathic and holistic care. It is often said that the midwife is the only health care provider that many childbearing women will see, so learning how to assess and recognize irregularities and abnormalities is crucial for the midwife and extremely beneficial for her clients. This skill is a common one required for the skills portion of the NARM exam so spending a few hours getting comfortable with it will be very valuable for the student. Given the importance of this skill, student or midwife will come away from this workshop with confidence in basic physical exam – so plan to attend!
Neonatal Resuscitation Program Skills Training & Simulation will be instructed by Tereasa Nadig, RN
