Symptom Assessment and Management of Adult Across the Lifespan for APRNs

Credit Option
Non credit
Program Type

This workshop provides the advanced practice nurse with the essential palliative care skills necessary to assess and manage complex symptoms in a coordinated and comprehensive manner in adults with 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 APRN will learn pharmacologic and non-pharmacologic interventions for management of symptoms such as fatigue and nausea, and the application of evidence-based principles in prescribing and de-prescribing medications, ordering diagnostic tests and recommending treatments. With the goal of improving physical well-being, functionality, and quality of life; validated symptom and functional assessment tools, treatment options and guidelines appropriate to the care of adults are identified. 

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.
