After being in the Air Force reserves, I came out of retirement to pursue further education. I would like to teach, and the Post Master's work supports that. Nursing truly is a life-long opportunity, both in what you want to do and the fact that you can take your career anywhere in the country.

Whether or not you're enrolled in the College of Nursing, SUNY Upstate offers a variety of accredited, continuing nursing education courses for interested nurses. From half day to weekend-long conferences, nurses have the opportunity to enhance or learn new skills.

Continuing education courses are taught by a range of skilled faculty from across the region.  We partner with service line departments on our campus-such as Pediatrics or the AIDS center-to provide accredited specialty conferences. Courses such as Children at Risk, NP Review Course, Clinical Skills Day and Post Master's Certificate programs are repeated regularly because of popular interest.

Accreditation

Many continuing education programs are awarded with contact hours.

The SUNY Upstate Medical University Institute for Continuing Nursing Education is an approved provider of continuing nursing education by the Northeast Multi-State Division, an accredited approver by the American Nurses™ Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.

If you would like more information, have an idea of a program, or would like to collaborate with the college on a program, contact Jodie Brown at brownjod@upstate.edu or 315 464-3905.

 

The Opioid Overdose Epidemic: How Nursing Can Help Turn the Tide

It is estimated that 80% of people who become addicted to opioids started with a prescription from a healthcare provider.  This is causing devastation in our communities that will last for decades.

Upstate Medical University's Opioid Overdose Conference challenges its audience of interprofessional clinical staff to understand opioid addiction and how we play an important role in stemming the tide in our country.  We can make a difference and save lives.

A diverse speaker panel will discuss the impact of the opioid overdose epidemic, addiction, narcotic prescribing practices, pain management and the role of healthcare providers.

Conversations in the Disciplines 2018:

Best Use Technologies in Health Care Education and Practice

The rapid digital evolution has created a wide range of technologies available for use in health care education and practice.  Those technologies play an important role in improving patient outcomes, ensuring the quality and safety of care in health care practice, and supporting and enhancing students' learning if domain knowledge in health care education.  There is a great need for end users of technologies in educational and practice settings (e.g., nurses, other clinicians, health care faculty) to have a deep understanding of how to implement and integrate technologies effectively and efficiently into their practice.

Speakers who are experts in the health care education and practice fields will present sessions.

If you are an educator, a practitioner, or a student who is passionate or curious about using technologies in your teaching, practice, and learning, this conference is right for you.
