How Nurses Can Heal America With Medicare For All is organized by National Nurses United (NNU) and will be held on Dec 03, 2019 at DoubleTree By Hilton Hotel Modesto, Modesto, California, United States of America. This Course has been approved for a maximum of 6 CEH Description: Nurses know that at the root of this crisis is a health care system that puts profits over people. But why does America have the system it has, when virtually every other wealthy nation manages to guarantee health care as a right - and at a fraction of the cost? Why do industry leaders and politicians continue to engage in endless policy debates when a majority of the public already agrees that Medicare for All is the obvious solution to our healthcare crisis? How can nurses help achieve Medicare for All so that America can join the rest of the industrialized world in guaranteeing health care as a right for all people? What else will RNs have to do, beyond winning Medicare for All, in order to bring about real health justice in the United States? This class will provide answers to these questions and will equip nurses with the basic tools they need to put this knowledge into action for the good of their patients, their profession, and their communities. Course Objectives: Upon completion of this class, participants will be able to: • Draw on a wide range of up-to-date research and international comparisons to accurately diagnose the underlying causes of the current health care crisis. • Describe how a Medicare for All (single-payer) system works, and explain how it will lower health care costs, improve patient outcomes and public health, and safeguard the nursing profession. • Assess how Medicare for All compares to other health care reform proposals on ethical, clinical, professional, and socioeconomic grounds. • Articulate which problems Medicare for All will solve and what challenges will remain under a single-payer system. • Explain how nurses can work with patients, other clinicians and caregivers, and their communities to achieve health justice through Medicare for All and more. Note: 6 CEH classes 9:00 am - 4:00 pm, additional hour available.

Exploring And Explaining The Workplace Violence And Burnout Epidemics is organized by National Nurses United (NNU) and will be held on Jan 14, 2020 at DoubleTree by Hilton Hotel Modesto, Modesto, California, United States of America. This Conference has been approved for a maximum of CE credit (6 CEHs). Description: Workplace violence is a growing epidemic in hospitals and other health care settings. Nurses and other health care workers encounter 5 to 12 times more workplace violence than workers overall in the United States. Simultaneously, nurses report extremely high rates of stress, post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD), and burnout. Research has shown that as many as 86 percent of nurses report burnout syndrome and 22 percent of nurses have symptoms of PTSD. This class will investigate the epidemics of workplace violence and burnout and what they mean for nurses today. Using national and state-level data and peer-reviewed literature, we will examine the relationship between the structure and management of the health care industry and risk factors for workplace violence and nurse burnout. Understanding this relationship reveals powerful structural solutions to workplace violence, stress, and burnout for nurses. Course Objectives: Upon completion of this class, participants will be able to: • Describe the epidemics of workplace violence and burnout among nurses. • Explain the impact of workplace violence and nurse burnout on patient care. • Discuss how direct care nurses can take steps to end the workplace violence and burnout epidemics. Note: CE courses are free to California Nurses Association and National Nurses United members and student nurses. For direct-care and staff RNs. Participants will be notified by U.S. mail and by email if a course is cancelled. Additional details will be posted as soon as information is available.

This live, 2-day educational offerings give hospital staff members the foundational, evidence-based information and critical thinking skills necessary to meet regulatory requirements and provide excellent care to this challenging patient population.
