FORT WORTH, Texas — A national nursing organization has recognized Karen P. Langston, M.S.N., RNC-OB, C-EFM, perinatal outreach coordinator at Texas Health Harris Methodist Hospital Fort Worth, for her commitment to promoting the health of women and newborns through nursing education.
Langston is one of the first nurses nationwide to earn the Fetal Heart Monitoring Program Award from The Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses. The award recognizes instructors for their significant contributions to the Fetal Heart Monitoring Program, which strengthens nurses’ ability in interpreting fetal heart rate and uterine activity monitoring. Langston has taught the program to perinatal clinicians at hospitals throughout Texas since 2005.
“I’m honored to receive recognition for doing something I feel passionately about, which is helping to give mothers and babies the best possible start in life,” Langston said.
Langston has been a perinatal nurse and educator at Texas Health Fort Worth for more than 27 years. She earned a master's degree in nursing from Regis University in Denver, Colo., and a bachelor's degree in nursing from University of Texas at Arlington.
The Association of Women’s Health, Obstetric and Neonatal Nurses helps advance the health care of women and newborns through advocacy, research and the creation of evidence-based standards of care.
