Professional education

March of Dimes offers a range of educational opportunities for health professionals. Some these opportunities include continuing education credits. We offer website resources, nursing modules, genetics education resources and more.

Nursing education

For more than 30 years, March of Dimes has offered continuing education to perinatal nurses. Developed by top experts in the field, our print and online materials can be used for individual or group study. We also support future nursing leaders by awarding scholarships to students who are pursuing graduate degrees in perinatal nursing.

Genetics education

Our Preconception and Prenatal Genetic Screening Pocket Facts describes widely used screening methods and data for certain birth defects. Our Newborn Screening pocket facts focuses on the 28 metabolic conditions plus hearing that are currently screened for as part of the standard panel. Since the guide was first printed, the panel now includes screenings for congenital heart defects and severe combined immunodeficiency syndrome.

Early Entry into Prenatal Care Resource Guide

March of Dimes is committed to addressing early entry into prenatal care to reduce negative health outcomes for mothers and babies. This toolkit is designed to give those on the front lines of maternal and child healthcare the resources needed to increase access to early prenatal care in communities across the U.S.
