For advanced practice RNs, currently working or intending to work in hospice and palliative care who are looking for a way to expand their skills, this 10-month, 100% online course makes it easier than ever. The Advanced Practice RN Certificate in Palliative Care is the first fully online, comprehensive certificate program designed specifically for advanced practice nurses in this field. Developed by industry experts, this program is based on the latest research in palliative care and brings best practices to the participant's computer screen. This program is delivered in an asynchronous online format and is focused on high quality evidence-based content.
The CSU Institute for Palliative Care's Executive Director, Helen McNeal, said, "Participants will walk away from this course with a variety of new skills, a new appreciation for the power of palliative care, and a renewed sense of purpose and confidence to continue our important work in hospice and palliative care."
