In 2021, clinicians have a variety of continuing education options ranging from online virtual learning to one- or two-day workshops in a variety of cities.

All educational offerings have continuing education credits available, and all programs include extensive handout and reference materials.

Whether you are looking to obtain or maintain your NCC certification, sharpen your practice skills, or just update your professional knowledge base, there are choices to fit every clinician’s needs.


2021 Advanced Fetal Monitoring and Medico-Legal Issues

Join me and my colleague/co-author Becky Cypher for an exceptional two days of continuing education! I will present an Advanced Fetal Monitoring program on day one, and I will be joined by Becky for day two where the focus will be legal issues, including a Becky’s half-day intensive on perinatal documentation addressing nursing, physician, and midwifery documentation issues – from antepartum through postpartum.

Don’t miss this opportunity to network with colleagues while learning from top experts in the field!

October 18 & 19, 2021 (rescheduled from March 2021) – Registration is now open and seats are limited, register here.


2021 Advanced Fetal Monitoring and Critical Care Obstetrics

I am so excited to be partnering with Drs. Stephanie Martin and Suzanne McMurtry Baird on another wonderful 2-day offering! I will present an Advanced Fetal Monitoring program on day one, and on day two Drs. Martin and Baird will provide a comprehensive course on Critical Care Obstetrics. This is an incredible opportunity to get a fetal monitoring update and learn everything you need to know about hypertension, sepsis, hemorrhage and other issues with maternal morbidity/mortality from the best minds in critical care.

These multidisciplinary programs are likely to sell out so please register early!
