AACN Unveils Updated Online
Pharmacology Course

E

ven the smallest medication
error can result in severe consequences
for your most vulnerable patients.
That's why advanced practice nurses
who prescribe medications and acute
and critical care nurses who administer
them must guard against missteps and
arm themselves with the most up-todate clinical knowledge.
The updated and newly released
"AACN: Acute and Critical Care
Pharmacology" online course helps
ensure patient safety and optimal
outcomes by offering acute and critical care nurses and APRNs the latest
evidence-based education and best
practices for the safe provision of
common medications for critically ill
patients.
Learners can earn up to 10.6 CE
hours after successful completion of
individual lessons and tests. AACN
Chief Clinical Officer Connie Barden
says an important benefit of the new
edition is that it now offers up to 6.0
APRN pharmacology contact hours.
"The convenience of the online
learning format offering the most up-todate drug information, as well as APRN
considerations and pharmacology CE
hours, all make the course invaluable in
any nurse's e-library," Barden says.
Using evidence-based content and
realistic patient scenarios, the course

addresses desired effects, possible
adverse reactions and safe dosing of the
medications frequently used in caring
for patients. Additionally, interactive
learning checks and custom animations
confirm and reinforce learning.
The updated third edition covers safe
and proper administration of:
* Vasoactive medications
* Antidysrhythmic medications
* Pain and sedation medications
* Neuromuscular blockade
medications
* Blood and blood products
The course also provides a comprehensive overview of pharmacokinetics,
pharmacodynamics and best practices
specific to the use of these drugs in
acute and critical care settings.
The newly revised web-based course
delivers information on current clinical
standards established by nursing, pharmacy, transfusion and cellular therapy
experts, which Barden feels is essential
for nurses and APRNs to enhance their
practice.

"This course is key to cultivating a
culture of patient safety, by imparting
cutting-edge knowledge and bolstering
confidence nurses need to avoid errors
and deliver optimal care," she adds.
"AACN: Acute and Critical Care
Pharmacology" is the result of a
collaboration among AACN, Elsevier
Clinical Solutions and the American
Society of Health-System Pharmacists.
Information about this course is
available online at www.aacn.org/
pharmaonline.
