The purpose of this activity is to report outcomes of HPNA's four-year project review of the APRN graduate programs with palliative care as a subspecialty. Connie Dahlin provides a consensus reflection regarding the philosophy and essential pedagogies and concepts incorporated into graduate nursing educational programs seeking to prepare entry-level APRNs to practice in specialized palliative care. The desired activity outcome is for participants to self-report APRN entry into practice.
The Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association is accredited as a provider of nursing continuing professional development by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accrediation under Provider Number P0284. Successful activity completion awards the RN participant 1.0 hours Nursing Continuing Professional Development (formerly known as Continuing Nursing Education).
