PCAR

October 18, 2018 8 a.m. – October 19, 2018 4:30 p.m., Edina

Unlike trauma education programs targeted at prehospital and emergency care providers, the Pediatric Care After Resuscitation (PCAR) course is specifically designed for acute care, critical care, and perioperative nurses who primarily work with children.

Clinical Ethics Symposium: Conscientious Objection

November 16, 2018, 9:30 a.m. – 4 p.m., Minneapolis

Medicine has allowed for a few to conscientiously object to providing services, like performing abortions, for people who have religious or moral objections. There isn’t any formal training on how to deal with conscientious objectors and what objects are actually appropriate versus others that may be more bigoted or discriminatory and what is the institutions requirement to honoring those objections. Without clear understanding of objections and what institutions should do with objectors, patients can be denied needed care and clinicians can be forced to provide care they object to. This symposium will address these gaps in learning to help address clinician conscientious objection.

2018 Nurse Manager Certification (CNML & NE-BC)

November 30, 2018, 7:30 a.m. – 5 p.m., Minneapolis

The course will include an overview of the CNML and NE-BC Exams, test taking strategies, and content review based on the exam content outlines of the CNML Exam provided by the American Organization of Nurse Executives (AONE) and the NE-BC Exam provided by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).
