A Community of Exceptional Nurses
Ensuring optimal outcomes by providing competent, quality care to critically ill patients challenges even the most experienced critical care nurse, and even a small misstep can have dire consequences. AACN: Critical Care Pharmacology is a Web-based course for new and experienced critical care nurses looking to increase their knowledge on safe administration of medications commonly used in critical care. A brief review of pharmacology is followed by an in-depth look at how drugs used to treat critical care patients work to achieve the desired effects.
The most comprehensive, evidence-based pharmacology course, AACN: Critical Care Pharmacology was authored by clinical experts in the nursing, pharmacy, transfusion and cellular therapies fields and reviewed by a clinical pharmacist from the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists/ASHP. The course:
A collaborative effort between the American Society of Health-System Pharmacists (ASHP), Elsevier | MC Strategies, and AACN, AACN: Critical Care Pharmacology features eight lessons based on current standards around safe drug administration as set forth by professional, regulatory, and certifying bodies. Each lesson has a case study with patient updates throughout to demonstrate the topics being presented. The ninth “lesson” is actually a Critical Care Pharmacology assessment exam. Completion of AACN: Critical Care Pharmacology earns users 13.5 CNE credit hours — all of which fulfill APRN pharmacology CNE requirements.
