APHON-Pediatric Chemotherapy and Biotherapy Provider Course

OFFERING INFORMATION:
This class will held on:
DAY ONE: Thursday, August 5, 2021
DAY TWO: Thursday, August 12, 2021

The Association of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Nurses
(APHON) Pediatric Chemotherapy and Biotherapy Provider
Course provides a comprehensive review of the knowledge
needed to administer cytotoxic and biotherapeutic agents.
Upon successful completion of the course, post-test and
evaluation, participants will receive an APHON Pediatric
Chemotherapy and Biotherapy Provider Card. This card
validates that the participant has completed the education
and demonstrated the knowledge needed to administer
chemotherapy and biotherapy agents to pediatric patients.


TARGET AUDIENCE:
Participants must be licensed registered nurses. This
course content is appropriate for nurses who are new
to pediatric and adolescent chemotherapy and
biotherapy administration, as well as for those who
want a comprehensive review.
LPNs and unlicensed staff who believe that they may
benefit from the course content are welcome to
audit but may not take the exam nor receive a
provider card. Participants who audit the course must
pay the course fee unless they possess and bring a
copy of the current edition of the curriculum.


CONTINUING EDUCATION:
The Association of Pediatric Hematology/Oncology
Nurses (APHON) is accredited as a provider of
continuing nursing education by the American Nurses
Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
Participants will be awarded 14 CNE contact hours
upon completion of the course, post-test and
evaluation. Active providers auditing the course as a
refresher will be awarded 14 CNE contact hours upon
completion of the course and evaluation.
All disclosures will be mentioned at the beginning of
the course.
We urge attendees to be aware of the continuing
education requirements of their own state board of
nursing, especially for those states in which CE is
mandatory. Final acceptance of awarded CNE contact
hours for audit participants is not guaranteed by
APHON and is up to the discretion of each state’s
nursing board.


IMPORTANT NOTE:
The APHON Pediatric Chemotherapy and Biotherapy
Course is NOT a certification course, and is not
intended to measure competency. Individual
institutions are responsible for determining their own
requirements for assessing clinical competency.
