Zika Virus: What Every Nurse Should Know

Merry-K. Moos, RN, MPH, FAAN

Contact hours
1.7 contact hours are available for this activity through 9/30/17. Continuing nursing education (CNE) contact hours may be extended past this date following content review and/or update.

Article purpose
Seldom have perinatal health care professionals been called upon to respond so quickly to a devastating pregnancy infection that was essentially unknown until a year ago. The magnitude of the complications of Zika infection on developing fetuses and rapidly evolving recommendations around related care require that nurses stay up to date on the latest information to best serve women of childbearing age and their families. The purpose of this article is to provide nurses with critical information on strategies to prevent Zika infection and appropriate follow-up of pregnant women and affected infants.

Objectives
After reading this article, the learner will be able to:

  1. Describe the epidemiology and transmission of the Zika virus.
  2. Identify five strategies to reduce transmission on the Zika virus.
  3. Explain appropriate surveillance for women infected with the virus.
  4. Describe appropriate follow-up of infants exposed to Zika virus in utero.
  5. Identify resources to keep knowledge about prevention and management of Zika infection up to date.
