Prescribing Controlled Substances in NJ Online Self Study Program
Back to all events
This innovative course provides an up-to-date overview of the pharmacology of controlled substances. It has been designed to meet the continuing education requirement for the prescriptive practice of the Advanced Practice Nurse (APN) in NJ. The presenters explore the challenges of responsible prescribing and will share the insight and knowledge gained from their nursing practice. The program is comprised of four modules which include audiovisual material, readings, case studies, narrated slides with valuable reference and resources.
Topics will include: pharmacodynamics of controlled substances, prevention/diminution of addictions in the general population, prevention and management of impaired practice among health professionals, as well as the use of controlled substances for the management of psychiatric, non-psychiatric and non-pain related conditions.
Preregistration is required and is limited (please register early). This is an online self-paced learner activity that requires computer and internet access. Approximately five days before the start date participants will receive program information, access dates and instructions on how to log into the course materials. Participants will have a two week period to complete the 6 hour program. The course may be completed in increments.
Criteria for successful completion of this program is the review of all self-study materials (time will be monitored), earning a score of 85 or above on the 20 question post-test and completion of the program evaluation. A certificate will be emailed after the course ends, and upon verification of successful completion.
