Highlights & Benefits

Our Principal Instructors, Alan P. Agins, PhD and Jody F. Agins, MSN, RNP, FNP/GNP-BC, have designed a comprehensive course which addresses the pharmacology and therapeutic uses of current medications used for primary care, as well as common clinical issues and concerns related to prescribing to the adult population.  Now in its 23rd year, “Pharmacology for Advanced Practice Clinicians,” continues to be the “go-to” outpatient pharmacology course, whether you are applying for or renewing prescriptive authority or renewing your ANCC certification.

Highlights and benefits of this course include:

  • 7 days and up to 52.5 hours of pharmacology content, taught by a nationally-renowned “teaching” pharmacologist, together with experienced clinical faculty.
  • The use of both didactic and case-based approaches allows you to meet the ANCC’s new rules for re-certification as well as the requirements for prescriptive authority* in many states.
  • A full-day Pediatric Pharmacology Preconference, focusing on medications and prescribing regimens specific to caring for children in the outpatient setting. California BRN Schedule II Controlled Substances educational requirements are included in the San Francisco and Las Vegas courses.

* States’ requirements for prescriptive authority vary.

   Please contact your State Board of Nursing regarding educational requirements.
