Acute Care Readiness
As healthcare workers on the front lines continue to valiantly battle against COVID-19, hospitals and clinics across the nation are calling on nurses from all specialties to fill this critical need in acute care. To support those practitioners who want to step forward, Chamberlain University, in partnership with Ascend Learning, is offering a complimentary online course to prepare licensed registered nurses for new care responsibilities.
Acute Care Readiness is a review course that will prepare licensed registered nurses working in either non-clinical, ambulatory or post-acute settings to return to clinical practice in acute care settings safely. Topics in this course will include a brief overview of pharmacology, medication administration, dosage calculation, clinical skills and infection prevention focusing on safe provision of care for the adult population in acute care.
