About Ultrasound Training:
Limited OB Ultrasound training requires both Didactic study and Clinical competency demonstration: RNNCEs offers you the most affordable options to complete and demonstrate didactic mastery (including a post test with a certificate of mastery on passage) and to practice scanning skills with simulation.  Check off requirements do not have a national standard.  We would refer you to the AWHONN new fifth edition updated Guide, and your unit policy.

Previously we had Didactic opportunities as live in person Seminars; however, with mandated changes brought on due to Covid-19, we found greater accessibility with the online format.  You can have individualized assistance as needed by request with our programs.

We recommend that you personally assess your didactic and clinical ultrasound background education and experience, as well as the descriptions of the modules on our site before purchase from our Ultrasound Training Menu.  If you need assistance navigating your personal learning plan email info@rnnces.com for a complimentary assessment and  guidance.

IF YOU WORK FOR KAISER in California.  Your unit will want you to show mastery in Second and Third trimester scanning.

If you have no previous experience with providing ultrasound, we STRONGLY suggest that to best meet your needs, limit your frustration, and provide best patient care, that you choose the Complete Bundle.

If you have experience and need a refresher or documentation then individually choose the Workbook, and/or Module entitled US Assessment for Fetal Growth in Third Trimester, and possibly the post test.  Two simulation modules can meet the Second and Third Trimester requirement, we recommend you choose the UA Assessment for Fetal Growth in High Risk Pregnancy (Second and Third Trimester) as it focuses on AF measurement and BPP.  

The easiest step, which matches the most frequently requested training, is to purchase the Basic Ultrasound Webinar Complete Bundle.   The bundle combines didactic and clinical simulation training.  The complete bundle works well for those doing Antepartum testing and L&D Triage.  It contains the 5 hour webinar series plus 3 hour workbook exercises, two 8 hour online simulation module that focuses on second and third trimester limited OB ultrasound, AF evaluation and BPP testing, and  a post test, for demonstration and documentation of mastery.  Discount pricing with the complete bundle and the 24 CE hours.  (On completion the participant would have 4 separate CE certificates).

You may design your own program by ordering the components individually.  Products will be priced individually without the bundle discount.
