Dr. Alan P. Agins earned a Ph.D. in Pharmaceutical Sciences from the University of Rhode Island.  He has held faculty appointments at Brown Medical School, Northeastern University School of Pharmacy and University of Virginia School of Nursing.  During his tenure at Brown, he received the "Dean's Teaching Excellence Award" over five consecutive years for his outstanding pharmacology lectures. As founder and President of PRN Associates, Dr. Agins has lectured nationally to more than 75,000 advanced practice clinicians and allied health professionals over the past 20 years. He is the author of 3 books, writes pharmacology-related articles and continuing education monographs and presents weekly live CE webinars for pharmacists through RxSchool (AMN Healthcare). In addition, Dr. Agins has recently launched Pharmacology One-on-One, a continuing education website containing originally produced videos that are unique, informative and entertaining.

Jody F. Agins, MSN, RNP, FNP/GNP-BC, WCC received her MSN/Family Nurse Practitioner from the University of Kansas. She has held faculty appointments at the University of Kansas, Truman State University and Arizona State University. Mrs. Agins is board certified by the ANCC in Family Practice and Gerontology as well as wound care certified through WCEI.  She is currently in private practice in Tucson and also serves as a primary care provider for CareMore Touch (WellPoint). Additionally, she is a healthcare consultant and president of Seminars for Healthcare Education, Inc. Mrs. Agins is a clinical preceptor for Family and Geriatric Nurse Practitioner students for University of Phoenix, University of Arizona and Arizona State University and is currently on the editorial board for Clinician Reviews.   

The "take-home-message" that Dr. Agins and Mrs. Agins attempt to instill is to adopt a profound respect for, but also cautious attitude about drugs - what they can do … and what their limitations are.  After many years "on the road" and every conceivable pharmacology question from their audiences, they maintain their great sense of humor and wit, as well as a unique talent for breathing life into dry or difficult subject matter.  Their goal is to make this course memorable, informative and enjoyable … essentially the very best pharmacology CE experience for everyone who attends.
