**Link Fixed** Clemson University School of Nursing--Appalachian American Alliance of Nurse Practitioners (AAANP)--Free CME Opportunity

Posted 2 months ago by Alicia Frasure


I trust that you are well. I’m leading a taskforce of Clemson University School of Nursing faculty and staff developing a network for nurse practitioners practicing in Appalachian counties.  

We would like to invite all nurse practitioners affiliated with the Northeast Tennessee Nurse Practitioners Association practicing in Appalachian counties to join us in Fall 2020 for a free Appalachian nurse practitioner education series as we lay the groundwork for the Appalachian American Alliance of Nurse Practitioners (AAANP). During this education series, we will offer 10 continuing education credits, professional development, and networking opportunities for nurse practitioners practicing in Appalachia.  

We hope that you are willing to help us promote this network and education series to your organization.  

Please freely share the below information.  

Nurse practitioners are invited to join a new network for nurse practitioners practicing in the Appalachian region. As part of this network, the Clemson University School of Nursing is offering a free of charge virtual education series that will include 10 CEUs on: 

  • Pharmacology with Dr. Margaret Fitzgerald (3 Pharmacology CEUs) 
  • Health disparities and cultural competence with Dr. Ora Strickland (1. 5 Nursing CEUs) 
  • Trauma-informed care and substance abuse with Dr. Mary Ellen Wright (1 Pharmacology CEU and .5 Nursing CEUs) 
  • Opioid-Induced Constipation with Dr. Lucia Gonzales (.5 Nursing CEUs) 
  • Marginalization and health outcomes with Dr. Anne Floyd Koci (1.5 Nursing CEUs) 
  • A health disparities panel led by Dr. Stephanie Davis, Professor, Director of Graduate Programs, Clemson University School of Nursing  and education series synthesis (1 Nursing CEUs)
  • Education Series Synthesis and Information Session on the Appalachian American Alliance of Nurse Practitioners (1 Nursing CEUs) 

For more information about the network and the education series, follow the directions/information below.

I am working on getting a better website address since the link in the posting doesn't work. I referred back to the original message and the link does not work there as well. I have contacted Dr. Koci and she will hopefully get back to me with the website address. I will update it as soon as I get her reply. :)
