New Hybrid Learning!
Learn how to assess, initiate, and manage patients requiring parenteral nutrition (PN) in this hybrid continuing education course where participants learn independently through a series of videos and come together at a later date for live group case work with faculty experts via Zoom. This course is for all clinicians who care for patients needing parenteral nutrition.
Two identical sessions of the course will be offered, with the only difference being the date and time of the live case work via Zoom.
The course capacity is limited to 100 participants for each session, so register early. This small class size will be optimal for hands-on learning with the course faculty to ensure each participant completes the course with improved skills in PN order writing.
Course registrants will receive the ASPEN Parenteral Nutrition Workbook, Second Edition in both hard copy and eBook format (a $99.99 value)*.
*Participants outside the US and Canada will receive the eBook format only.
