Childbirth and parenting can sometimes require extra support for those that are experiencing it for the first time. The Department of Childbirth Education at Hackensack University Medical Center offers a variety of classes which provide knowledge and support to new and expectant families. Our classes provide information, teach skills, and inspire confidence in a fun and relaxed atmosphere.
Hackensack University Medical Center believes that great pre-hospital care for our communities begins with high quality education. In an effort to provide the highest quality of care to our patients we ensure that every Paramedic, EMT, and critical care transport Nurse receives rigorous and ongoing classroom and clinical education in alignment with Hackensack University Medical Center’s mission, vision and beliefs.
We offer training classes 4 times per month on different days of the week and at different times. This flexibility allows you to pick a class that works with your schedule. You don’t need to wait for credentialing to be complete before you verify your Epic competency, but we strongly recommend taking a class at least 2 days prior to your official start to give Epic Security time to complete your profile.
From time to time, the Pediatric Emergency Department and the pediatric trauma center work together to provide educational programs and training to healthcare professionals and the public on topics of importance, such as the H1N1 virus, teenage driving, or the New Jersey safety helmet laws. The department also educates medical students from the medical schools at Rutgers and St. George’s University to prepare them for their future.
