National Nurse Practitioner Week is November 11-18, and Frontier Nursing University is once again celebrating with its annual virtual event.
The schedule is set for the “Answer the Call to Service” NP Week free online sessions. Anyone can visit the website to hear from this year’s outstanding speakers and participate in two free continuing education opportunities.
The first session begins on November 12 at 6 p.m. EST, with Dr. Heather A. Shlosser, DNP, APRN, FNP-BC, PMHNP-BC presenting a continuing education (CE) session. Entitled “Psychopharmacology in Primary Care,” Dr. Shlosser will explain keys of successful psychopharmacology; identify essential psychopharmacology of antidepressants, mood stabilizers, and more; and discuss evidence-based treatments for depression, anxiety and ADHD, among other disorders.
This session is approved for 1.0 contact hour of continuing education (which includes 1.0 hour of pharmacology) by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners. Activity ID 18083330. This activity was planned in accordance with AANP Accreditation Standards and Policies.
On November 13 at 6 p.m. EST, Rear Admiral (RADM) Sylvia Trent-Adams, PhD, RN, FAAN, Deputy Surgeon General will present our featured LIVE session, “Leading From Where You Are: The Role of the Nurse Innovator.” Participants will hear from the perspective of RADM Trent-Adams, who received numerous awards for her leadership and contributions to the field of nursing, including the International Red Cross Florence Nightingale Medal.
Eileen T. O’Grady RN, NP, PhD will take the virtual stage on November 14 at 6 p.m. EST to present a LIVE CE session. Her discussion, “Answer the Call to Midwifery: Master the Self” will inspire patient-focused practitioners to explore how to master their own health and wellness while answering the call to serve others. Participants will learn actionable tools to masterfully lead the self, reduce stress, build emotional intelligence skills, recognize patterns that need interruption and explore models on how to achieve balance.
This continuing nursing education activity was approved by the American Holistic Nurses Association (AHNA), an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation and is approved to award CNE through 2/12/2020 (AHNA approval #1327). 1.0 contact hour of continuing education will be offered to those who participate in this LIVE session and complete the post-test survey.
