Jun 16, 2014 - 12:33:16 PM

( - SAN MARCOS, Calif., June 16, 2014  -- For advanced practice RNs currently working in palliative care and 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."

What sets this program apart?

"This is a comprehensive online course designed by experts in palliative care. It is not a condensed, abbreviated or in any way a reduced online version of a typical series of classroom courses," said McNeal.

Optional Fellowship

If the participant is currently employed and working in palliative care, the institute will work with the participant and their supervisor to arrange their own unique fellowship program. The Fellowship will run concurrent with the coursework for the APRN and will give the participant the added benefit of direct supervision hours not required by the certificate. Learn more about the fellowship option on the website.
