To be eligible, a candidate must currently be a licensed registered nurse in the United States or Canada with two years of work experience in labor and delivery and at least 2,000 hours in the specialty.

It keeps track of the heart rate of a baby. It also checks the duration of the contractions during labor. Having this certification promotes effective communication and collaboration amongst the different roles team members in a hospital’s obstetrics department may have.
