As one of 54 organizations represented by the Nursing Community coalition, AWHONN signed a letter sent on March 16, 2017 to the Appropriations Subcommittee on Labor, Health and Human Services, Education and Related Agencies, requesting $244 million for the Health Resources and Services Administration’s (HRSA) Nursing Workforce Development programs in FY 2018. For more than 50 years, these programs have helped to build the supply and distribution of qualified nurses to meet our nation’s healthcare needs.
AWHONN’s first evidence-based clinical practice guideline addressing diabetes, provides comprehensive recommendations for nurses who care for women with diabetes-- types 1 or 2 and gestational diabetes (A1 or A2)--during pregnancy, labor and postpartum, and their babies. Included are recommendations for blood glucose targets and monitoring in pregnancy, intravenous insulin administration during labor, and neonatal hypoglycemia and feeding guidelines. The guideline will be invaluable for nurses, midwives, and nurse-practitioners working in both outpatient and inpatient settings.
