SHORT TERM INTERNATIONAL TRIPS
Our team of nursery and NICU-trained RNs and NNPs strive to meet the needs of communities we visit throughout the world. This work includes supporting, visiting, and sharing information with staff and support members at sites where mothers and babies seek care from community health care providers, including birth attendants.
OCTOBER 2019: MOZAMBIQUE
Nurses En Route took a team of 9 RNs and NNPs to Mozambique for a two week project, teaching the AAP's Helping Babies Survive (aap.org) curriculum to local medical and nursing students, doctors, and nurses. Our work helped community medical workers grow in both knowledge and confidence, and the project has led to a decrease in infant deaths in the area along with increased health for both mothers and their newborns.
