MCH Public Health Nurse Training

Maternal and Child Health (MCH) Public Health Nurse Orientation

September 13, September 29, October 26-28, 2016

Our curriculum will include a combination of in-person classroom training and distance learning. Upon hire and prior to attending the in-person training, new nurses (supervisors included) will be asked to participate in distance learning prerequisite activities (MCH PHN 100). Following attendance at MCH PHN 200 (in-person training), there will be post classroom distance learning (MCH PHN 300) that will be required to be completed within 9 months of the MCH PHN 200 training.

  • MCH Public Health Nursing 100: Self-paced Prerequisite Distance Learning Activities:
    Plan to spend 8-10 hours in a combination of webinars and self-paced review of reading materials prior to coming to the onsite training.
    • Required Reading & Reflection: (Will be sent to you at registration)
    • Required Webinar MCH PHN Home Visiting 101: Social Determinants of Health, Tuesday September 13th 10:00 -11:30 (Will be sent to you at registration)

  • MCH Public Health Nursing 200*: Three full days of on site training in Wilsonville. Focus is on physical assessment (prenatal and infant), building and managing nurse client relationships and motivational interviewing.
  • MCH Public Health Nursing 300: Distance learning via a combination of self-paced reading materials and webinars. Topics will include intimate partner violence, breastfeeding, injury prevention and perinatal depression.

The in-person training will be on October 26, 27 and 28, 2016. Registration coming soon.

Please save these dates if you are a new Maternal Child Health PHN Home Visitor and have not previously attended an MCH orientation.

Please note*

The MCH PHN 200 class size is limited to 25 participants with a goal of creating an optimal learning environment. Priority for the in-person training will be given to new staff who has not previously attended MCH training. However, we will take a wait list for experienced PHNs who are interested in the new curriculum. As we have space available they will be welcome to join. Plan to spend 8-10 hours in a combination of webinars and self-paced review of reading materials prior to coming to the onsite training. Details will be provided upon registration.
