Advanced practice nurses (APRNs) now have an online option to comply with Ohio House Bill 216. The Ohio State University College of Nursing has developed two online courses: advanced pharmacology across the lifespan and advanced neonatal pharmacology. APRNs may choose the course that best suits their needs according to the population they serve.

House Bill 216 replaces the certificate of authority (COA) and the certificate to prescribe (CTP) with licensure and requires advanced practice nurses in the state of Ohio to have a current CTP or to complete 45 hours of advanced pharmacology within five years preceding licensure. Each of the online courses meets the 45-hour requirement. In addition, the courses offer an easy-to-follow online format. Self-paced modules will include narrated lectures, handouts that can be downloaded and printed for reference and quizzes that are graded pass/fail. Sections can be retaken, and there is no additional homework. Both courses are priced at $490.

Registration is now open for both online courses and will begin July 1. Register at go.osu.edu/pharm.
