Hospice and Palliative Nurse Certification Review Course

OCHCH, 1105 Schrock Road, Suite 120, Columbus, OH 43229

OCHCH is excited to offer this course, designed for nurses preparing to take the certification exam for hospice and palliative nurses.  The program is additionally intended to benefit any nurse working in hospice, home health, oncology or other settings who are caring for patients with end stage disease processes.

The Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association offers a “Clinical Review for The Generalist Hospice and Palliative Nurse” as a means of preparing the practitioner for certification.  Nurses who participate in this 2-day review can expect a general presentation of the course material via multi-media tools, handouts and lectures, as well as individual and group exercises to reinforce the information. 

The goal of this presentation is to promote and review the special knowledge of hospice nursing care as well as disease progression.  Regulatory aspects of the Medicare benefit are also included.  The material is presented congruently with the study guide for the generalist hospice and palliative nurse.  To be eligible for the exam, an applicant must hold a current registered nursing license, and it is recommended that candidates have at least 2 years of experience in hospice and palliative nursing practice.

The review is most useful to the participants when personal study time is applied in combination with the use of the study guide and lecture information.  However, as with any course of material, there is no guarantee of a passing grade in testing.  This is dependent on the abilities of the participant.

Location: This two-day program will be held at the Ohio Council for Home Care & Hospice, 1105 Schrock Rd., Suite 120, Columbus, OH  43229.  Registration check-in is from 8:30 am to 9:00 pm.  The educational program begins at 9:00 am and will end at 4:00 pm.  Continental breakfast and lunch are included in the registration fee. 

Exam Registration: The certification examination for hospice and palliative nurses is computer based, offered at various times throughout the year.  For more information and for an exam application, contact the National Board for Certification of Hospice & Palliative Nurses (http://hpcc.advancingexpertcare.org).
