Infant Safe Sleep: The Basics and Beyond

This training is for nurses caring for infants within hospitals (such as mother/baby and labor and delivery units). The training reviews the 2016 updated American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) Infant Safe Sleep guidelines, highlighting issues/concerns that commonly arise in the hospital setting including swaddling, skin-to-skin care and use of hats. The training also teaches techniques that can be used to support families in implementing the safe sleep recommendations both in the hospital and at home after discharge. Additionally, suggestions are provided for hospital and system-wide activities to promote infant safe sleep.

You will receive 1 nursing contact hour for completion of this course. This nursing continuing professional development activity was approved by Montana Nurses Association, an accredited approver with distinction by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.  

If you would like to take this training, complete the registration form and the link to the training will be emailed to you within 3 days. Upon completion of the training and post-training evaluation, you will receive the continuing education certificate.

This training is also available in-person and can be arranged with birthing hospitals once it is safe to hold in-person events. If you are interested in learning more about this possibility, please email Colleen Nelson at
