Protect Yourself Know Your Nurse Practice Act Course for Dietitians is organized by ContinuingEducation.com - OnCourse Learning Corporation and will be held during Dec 31, 2001 - May 12, 2018.
The target audience for this medical event is Dietetics/Nutrition. This CME Conference has been approved for a maximum of 1.00 CPEU.
Nurses have an obligation to keep abreast of current issues surrounding the regulation of the practice of nursing, not only in their respective states, but also across the nation, especially when their nursing practice crosses state borders. Because the practice of nursing is a right granted by a state to protect those who need nursing care, nurses have a duty to patients to practice in a safe, competent and responsible manner. This requires a nurse licensee to practice in conformity with their state's statute and regulations. This course outlines information about nurse practice acts and how they affect nursing practice.
The goal of this nurse practice act continuing education module is to enhance nurses’ knowledge of nurse practice acts and how they define professional practice and nurses’ rights and responsibilities as practitioners.
Conference Objectives are :
• List four provisions included in most nurse practice acts
• Identify the types of violations included and the rights afforded the nurse licensee in most nurse practice acts
• Analyze how current issues of state nurse practice acts affect the nurse licensee
Additional details will be posted as soon as they are available.
