WATERBURY, Conn. (May 15, 2023) – In recognition of National Nurses Month, Post University is reinforcing its commitment to practicing nurses by offering three new courses through its School of Continuing Education. Designed for advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs), the Cardiac Medications, Prescribing Essentials for the APRN and Respiratory Medications courses may satisfy continuing education requirements in applicable states for APRNs looking to maintain licensure and certification.
With nearly 4.2 million registered nurses (RNs) in the U.S., the need for flexible and accessible professional development resources is at an all-time high. To support the nation’s largest healthcare workforce, the new course offerings within Post’s School of Continuing Education deliver those flexible resources, enabling nurses to stay current in today’s changing environment.
“We’re very proud to offer hardworking nurses the necessary courses to stay abreast of evolving healthcare approaches,” said Post University School of Continuing Education Dean Dawn Sherman, Ed.D. “The need for accessible, low-cost continuing education options is essential for nurses to reinforce their skillset and maintain their certification. These initial courses are the first of many online options for our dedicated frontline healthcare workers.”
Course completers will earn 0.1 continuing education units (CEU) each for Respiratory Medications and Cardiac Medications through the International Association for Continuing Education and Training (IACET), while Prescribing Essentials for the APRN completion will qualify for 0.2 CEUs. Each course will be offered for $39.
Post’s School of Continuing Education leverages the university’s extensive online education experience to provide adult learners with self-paced, digital courses that satisfy personal and professional learning goals within a supportive learning environment. By synthesizing best practices and the latest methodologies from academic concentrations within the American Sentinel College of Nursing and Health Sciences, John P. Burke School of Public Service and Education, The Malcolm Baldrige School of Business, and the School of Arts & Sciences, these courses offer innovative educational experiences that respond to the needs of a changing workforce.
