Advanced Pharmacology Across the Lifespan (Online)

Continuing Education Credits: 45.78 Pharm CEs
Cost: $490
Registration: Ongoing​

The Advanced Pharmacology Across the Lifespan course was developed with the Advanced Practice Nurse in mind. The course will prepare you to be proficient in diagnosing, prescribing, and managing a wide range of disease processes. This course was developed in response to Ohio House Bill 216 legislation that requires all advance practice nurses to be licensed. This course is also useful for APRNs who are transferring into the state and need to establish or renew their Ohio license with prescriptive authority.

The program includes 26 self-paced modules that 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.

Upon completion of the program, you will receive a certification of completion and 45.78 hours of continuing education credit. Contact hours are awarded commensurate with participation.
