About NW PRN
2000 a group of perinatal managers
and educators met and discussed the feasibility of pooling resources
to provide programs to meet the needs of entry level perinatal nurses
within a large metropolitan community. A perinatal consortium was
subsequently formed consisting of educators from five local hospitals.
The Northwest Perinatal Resource Network (NW
PRN) was established.
purposes identified by NW
are to capitalize on and combine the rich professional and educational
resources in the community. Additionally, NW
PRN has developed two mainstay
programs, founded on AWHONN,
and community standards to enhance perinatal
education and care in the region.
