Prescribing Controlled Substances Course for Advanced Practice Nurses (APNs) in New Jersey

Hundreds of nurses have completed this comprehensive course, which has consistently received outstanding course evaluations. 

Offered monthly, this 6-hour course is designed to meet the continuing education requirement for the prescriptive practice of the Advanced Practice Nurse (APN) in New Jersey and can be used to count toward the recently released Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) 8-hour training guidelines. This requirement is for DEA registered practitioners on the treatment and management of patients with opioid or other substance abuse disorders. To meet these requirements, in additional to this course, you will need an additional 2 hours of content. This can come from a variety of sources. If you are completing an APN program you have likely met through the program’s curriculum. More information on these guidelines is available on the SAMHSA website
