Nurses are the heart of the March of Dimes. You support our efforts in so many ways: as health care providers, educators, volunteers and fundraisers. As a way of saying thank you for all you do, the March of Dimes has developed comprehensive resources to support your work. These resources include high-quality continuing nursing education (CNE) activities, graduate nursing scholarships and research awards. We recognize that nurses play a critical role in advancing our mission. Our goal is to equip you with the resources you need to provide the highest quality care to your patients.
For your patients
Patient education is an essential part of providing
high-quality care, but finding accurate, carefully-researched, objective information sometimes
can be a challenge. March of Dimes education products reflect more than 70 years of experience in promoting healthy behaviors that lead to healthy pregnancies and healthy babies. Our award-winning products are easy-to-read and either bilingual or available separately in English and Spanish. To purchase March of Dimes patient education products, visit marchofdimes.com/catalog.
