Program Type

This workshop provides students with the knowledge and skills to provide person centered palliative care to patients with chronic and serious illnesses.

Offered exclusively to registered nurses (RNs and APRNs), participants will earn six Continuing Education Units through Adelphi University’s College of Nursing and Public Health, an approved provider of continuing nursing education by the Northeast Multistate Division, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.  You will also be awarded a digital badge that you can add to your résumé or social media. 

The common trajectories of serious illnesses including GI, renal, liver, cancer, frailty and COVID-19 are examined. Psychological, spiritual, social, ethical and legal aspects of care are explored.  Advanced care planning is discussed.

Can be taken individually or as part of the Healthcare: Palliative Care certificate program.

Workshops taken individually will not count towards the certificate, but will earn six CEU’s and a digital badge. If you wish to earn the certificate, you must apply to the certificate program and complete any six of the seven workshops.
