Intermediate Fetal Heart Monitoring Course



Our team of Instructors welcome you to join us for an Intermediate Fetal Heart Monitoring (FHM) course. 

The Intermediate Fetal Heart Monitoring Course is a one-day workshop (pre-course online work also required) focusing on the application of fetal heart monitoring knowledge and skills in intrapartum nursing practice. It is designed by AWHONN for registered nurses and physicians who have completed a basic fetal monitoring course and use fetal heart monitoring technology in the intrapartum perinatal setting. It builds on the essential knowledge and skills gained through caring for perinatal families, and at least one year of working in an intrapartum setting is recommended for successful completion.
Clinicians whose only experience is antepartum inpatient care, antepartum fetal testing, or limited intrapartum care may need additional didactic and/or clinical experience to gain the required knowledge base.


Interpret fetal heart rate monitoring using NICHD terminology within a safety culture framework of interdisciplinary teamwork.
Describe clinical interventions and related maternal-fetal physiology to optimize fetal oxygenation.
Demonstrate collaborative communication in the perinatal setting.
Demonstrate common perinatal procedures related to fetal monitoring.
