Fall Term at Frontier Nursing University (FNU) rings in a vibrant series of annual virtual events.
The goal of the FNU Virtual Events series is to share ideas and knowledge with current and prospective nurse-midwives and nurse practitioners that will help improve care for women and families. These events are FREE and open to the public, and we invite you to join us in these important discussions.
Below is the current lineup:
September 30-October 6: National Midwifery Week Virtual Event
This year’s event, themed “Answer the Call to Service,” will explore the experiences of Certified Nurse-Midwives around the country during National Midwifery Week. With online sessions such as “Female Sexual Health and Cancer Survivorship: Art, Science and Quality of Life” and “Maximizing Midwifery: Strategies to Expand Access to the Midwifery Model of Care” presented by FNU community members and industry colleagues, this free event will engage many different areas of thought regarding nurse-midwifery.
November 11-17: National Nurse Practitioner Week Virtual Event
In honor of National Nurse Practitioner Week, FNU continues the “Answer the Call to Service” theme with this virtual event focused toward Nurse Practitioners. Watch free educational sessions, including one from a special keynote speaker (details will be posted on the website). This event is a fantastic opportunity for members of the FNU community as well as all nurse practitioners and those interested in nurse practitioning to hear educational and inspiring sessions.
May 2019: Virtual International Day of the Midwife
FNU played an important role as a 2018 sponsor of this free virtual event that uses online conferencing software to bring together anyone who has an interest in childbirth matters – from midwives to professionals, students to consumers. FNU President Susan Stone also delivered a keynote session in the 2018 VIDM event. We look forward to more involvement and international connections to be made in 2019!
With this series, FNU continues to lead the future of nursing and midwifery education. We are grateful to utilize technology to connect people around the world and build up leaders in the primary care of women and families.
Join us for these exciting events!
