Are you a developing nurse, paramedic, or allied health professional hoping to practice in the transport environment Have you reached a point in your career where you are looking for that high-level simulation or critical care experience to stretch your boundaries? The Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing at Case Western Reserve Universities has the opportunities you seek.
First, the Callahan Family Emergency and Critical Care Transport Center and the Dorothy Ebersbach Academic Center for Flight Nursing collaboratively specialize in preparing the Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) for the critical care transport environment. Entering the Adult Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner program will give you the opportunity to obtain an additional certificate in the transport environment. The unique program provides additional critical care opportunities for managing adult and pediatric acute medical and traumatic events. A post-masters certificate is also available in pediatric acute care.
In this program you will gain the necessary knowledge and skills to function independently, using structured protocols, in out-of-hospital transport environments. Additionally, as a student in this one-of-a-kind program, you will have access to all the cutting-edge technology offered at the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing.
Second, we are increasing our online presence with new, continuing education courses of study, which will be offered in late 2020. These programs will offer didactic material you can review at your own pace followed by simulation experiences to gauge your mastery of the material and to develop critical thinking skills. Additionally, there will be hands-on simulation opportunities at the university to maximize your hands-on experience.
Finally, we will be offering opportunities for Emergency Medical Technician and Paramedic continuing education using online and hands-on simulation environments. These programs are estimated to launch in 2021.
