Emergency department work is always demanding for nurses. In addition to Obstetric Emergencies, nurses must also deal with non-obstetric pathologies, neonatal emergencies or more delicate situations such as out-of-hospital deliveries or pseudocyesis.

In order to deal with the main life-threatening emergencies of both the pregnant mother and the fetus, nurses must have access to adequate health education, which takes an up-to-date and detailed approach. With this is mind, the contents of this program are divided into the different phases of pregnancy, in order to provide a comprehensive update on the most relevant Obstetric and Neonatal Emergencies.

TECH has assembled a specialized team of nurses and midwives with extensive practical experience in the treatment of all types of obstetric emergencies. This experience distinguishes the theoretical contents of the program, which are based on the most rigorous scientific findings, enriched with clinical cases to effectively contextualize all the advances covered.
