Hospice & Palliative Nurse (RN) Study Program

Cindy Morgan, RN, MSN, CHC, CHPN, is a Certified Hospice & Palliative Care Nurse and a HPN approved educator

While this course is geared to assist RNs in passing the exam, it is beneficial to other RNs who have not yet decided to test for certification. This is valuable information for other disciplines working in hospice & palliative care, i.e. new Medical Directors, Managers, Therapists, etc. This 1-day course will focus on hospice and palliative principles related to nursing care for patients with life-limiting illnesses. The course has been developed to help Registered Nurses prepare for the National Board for Certification of Hospice and Palliative Nurses certification exam. The curriculum can also be beneficial for any nurse working in hospice, home health, oncology or other settings who are caring for patients with end stage disease processes. Completion of the course does not guarantee that the participant will pass the exam.

Objectives:

  • The care goals and decisions for hospice and palliative care patients
  • The components of treatment decisions
