Pain management in the laboring patient continues to arise with challenges of safety, efficacy and comfort. Nitrous oxide is an option for managing laboring women’s pain. However, the lack of education for perinatal teams across the United States regarding nitrous oxide administration in the labor patients omits a successful pain management option. The purpose of this Doctor of Nursing Practice project is to create an evidence-and theoretically-based education module for the labor and delivery team, incorporating an instructional video to build knowledge on the use of nitrous oxide in the laboring mother.
