Career Progression and Development:
This program serves as a guide with practical tips and techniques not normally taught in nursing school. It focuses on successfully making the transition from student to professional nurse, minimizing legal risks, use of social media in healthcare, and other aspects of nursing which occur at and away from the bedside.
This Sigma program supports nurses as they transition from a registered nurse into a nurse practitioner. It addresses new responsibilities, including prescriptive authority and business management considerations of billing, coding, and quality outcome measures while expressing the importance of taking the certification exam and becoming credentialed by the state and federal government. The program discusses the process of new employee on-boarding and the benefits of mentor programs and fellowships as they transition into their new role. Learners will also discover ongoing resources for continuing education, networking, the importance of joining a professional organization, and work-life balance.
This refresher program was designed for nurses who have been out of the nursing workforce but want to return to practice. Each course in this program features interactive knowledge checks and scenarios to allow learners to practice applying their knowledge. This program is mapped to the NCLEX-RN test plan as well as QSEN core competencies.
The future of nursing is informed by the lived experiences of nurses, educational preparation, and personal connection to social and professional issues that compel action. This certificate program aims to develop nurses’ knowledge and skills in advocating for themselves as well as at the organizational, community, regional, or global levels.
