AANN and ABNN's Certificate Programs
A certificate program is different from a certification in that it is usually an educational offering that confers a document at the program's conclusion. A certification refers to an earned credential that demonstartes the holder's specialized knowledge, skills, and experience. Learn more about AANN and ABNN's certificate programs below.
Certificate Program for the Seizure and Epilepsy Healthcare Professional (6 Modules)
New in 2021, the Certificate Program for the Seizure and Epilepsy Healthcare Professional is an assessment-based certificate program that uses instructional design principles to deliver an online self-study educational course followed by post-assessments. This course will equip you with the tools you need to safely care for patients with seizures and epilepsy, while providing the type of quality care demanded by your institution. There are six core online modules, presented sequentially, to be completed followed by passing a post-assessment to earn the certificate.
Certificate Program for the Seizure and Epilepsy Healthcare Professional in a Comprehensive Epilepsy Center (8 Modules)
Coming in late Summer 2021, two additional modules to the core 6 modules above, provide information on a nurse’s role in a Comprehensive Epilepsy Specialty Clinic and an Epilepsy Monitoring Unit (EMU). The completion of these two additional modules and post-assessment will enhance the professional’s and facility’s ability to care for patients admitted to a comprehensive epilepsy center or EMU and will meet the qualifications for National Association of Epilepsy Centers (NAEC) accreditation.
