Increasing complexity driven by technology has created new demands on nurses in nursing homes, home care, schools and other community settings. To help nurses meet the new challenges, the University of Wisconsin-Eau Claire Continuing Education in Nursing/UW-Extension will sponsor a program titled "Technology Update for Nurses Outside the Acute Care Setting" from 9 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Wednesday, May 17, at the UW-Eau Claire School of Nursing.
Participants will choose two of the following skills practice sessions: Basic IV Skills, Advanced IV Skills, or tube feedings.
The following individuals will present the program: Cathy Cooper, nursing systems instructor; Gwen Amoapim, graduate nursing education student; and Wendy Erickson, Nutritional Support Services, Luther Hospital.
The program costs $85, which includes instructional materials, lunch and refreshments. Attendees will earn six continuing education contact hours. The registration deadline is Monday, May 8.
