4 Hrs

Course expiration date: 6/20/2021

According to Maxwell (2014), a leader does not need a title to strive to make things better. Each individual has the potential to be a leader with ingrained qualities that require development.

Leadership uses practices, behaviors, and skills to lead a group to achieve goals (Kouzes & Posner, 2017a). Challenges in the health-care field, such as the continued effort to improve quality and safety while providing efficient and cost-effective care, require staff nurses to take a leadership role. In doing so, they will help patients reach their goals as well as effect change within the work group and the organization.

Nurse Practitioner’s Guide to Prescribing Controlled Substances – Focus on Opioids
4 Hrs 4 Hrs

Course expiration date: 8/24/2021


Appropriate prescribing practices are critical for all medications, but drugs that are considered controlled substances require additional attention. The Drug Enforcement Agency (DEA), along with the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS), all have a role in determining the scheduling of prescription medications. As prescribers, it is critical that nurse practitioners understand not only federal but state requirements for prescribing all controlled substances. In addition, inappropriately prescribing opioids, resulting in their misuse and abuse, has led to many changes, including new safety and quality recommendations that must be considered. This course will provide a general review of federal and state controlled substance regulations and the prescribing of all controlled substances in general, as well as focus on clinical and safety considerations when prescribing opioid medications for acute and chronic pain not related to cancer.
