This includes .75 credits of Opioid Education and Pain Management Training and 1.50 credits of Electronic Health Records Training. Please check your individual state licensing board requirements before claiming these credits.



Successful completion of this program will award 5.67 nursing contact hours for day 1, and 5.58 contact hours for day 2.
