SHORT TERM INTERNATIONAL TRIPS: Train-the-Trainers
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, training, and sharing information in local languages with local healthcare workers that serve mothers and babies seeking delivery and newborn care.
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, nurses, and birth attendants. Our work helped community workers grow in both knowledge and confidence. Evidence-based current research shows these efforts decrease infant and maternal mortality rates.
