- Texas Jurisprudence & Ethics - N1540
This course is specific to nursing jurisprudence and nursing ethics in the state of Texas. In 2013, the 83rd Regular Session of the Texas legislature amended the NPA to require every nurse licensed in Texas to complete at least two hours of continuing education related to nursing jurisprudence and nursing ethics before the end of every third two-year licensing period (Tex. Occ. Code §301.305). The Texas Board of Nursing (hereinafter termed the “Board”) amended its rules and regulations to comply with these requirements (22 Tex. Admin. Code §216). The requirement is applicable to the licensing period that begins on or after January 1, 2014.
- Palliative Care & Hospice Care - N1655
Palliative and hospice care can deliver much needed health care and mental/spiritual support for the patient and their caregivers. Too often, such care is delayed until the patient is within days of death. Why wait until the last days of life to initiate palliative care? Why not access the best quality of care as soon as possible that supports the patient as well as the family members? All healthcare professionals involved with seriously ill and terminally ill patients should become educated and empowered in obtaining the most effective care indicated as death approaches.
- Burn & Cold Trauma - N1656
Nurses practicing in emergency departments, intensive care units, trauma units and burn units will find this course comprehensive on managing the burn injured patient in their initial care. Nurses practicing in home health and medical/surgical as well as rehabilitation units will find this course provides an explanation and knowledge of initial treatment of the burn patient and the resulting continued nursing care.
- Pennsylvania Child Abuse Recognition and Reporting - N1635
This course fulfills the requirement that all Pennsylvania nurses complete 2 hours of Board-approved continuing education in child abuse recognition and reporting requirements as a condition of their license renewal.
- Assessment of Pain in Special Populations - N1616
Performing a pain assessment is routine for many nurses. However, identifying pain and evaluating the effectiveness of pain treatments can be a challenge in patients that are non-verbal, confused or who have intellectual or developmental disabilities. These individuals may not recognize their own pain and are at risk for inadequate assessment of pain. This informative continuing education course for nurses shares numerous tools and instruments as well as techniques that can be used to assess pain in special populations such as neonates, infants, children, older adults and patients with cognitive impairments and/or developmental disabilities.
