In addition, continuing professional development is a professional regulatory requirement. Purpose of Program: This conference offers nurses who work regular or occasional night shifts education that relates specifically to their context of practice. Your learning outcomes: • Identify the extended professional accountabilities that may exist as a result of working on a night shift • Explain the typical signs and symptoms of rapid patient deterioration and the role of the night nurse in such circumstances • Attune yourself to a patient who is fearful in the night and engage in a therapeutic use of self • Be confident in providing holistic care to patients with a range of clinical conditions within the context of night shift nursing Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.
