Safe Handling of Hazardous Drugs

Update yourself on the latest safe handling practices!

Are you wondering about whether your hazardous drug handling is safe? Do you feel comfortable with your knowledge of personal protective equipment (PPE)? Does your busy schedule demand a convenient, flexible alternative to classroom instruction?

Safe Handling of Hazardous Drugs is an informative course providing the quality instruction you expect from ONS in a new, convenient format. The classes are faculty-mediated programs, allowing students to interact directly with the faculty through e-mail and chat forums. Working along with the text, students will engage in self-paced reading assignments, activities, and learning opportunities. Students will interact with faculty through e-mails, chat forums, and ongoing evaluation of assignments. The student forums will provide opportunities to share expertise with colleagues.

This is a self-paced, faculty-led course. Students may access the course at any time during the three-week period that their class is active, and may complete the activities at any time.

This course requires your attendance at two live chat forum sessions. Four chat times are offered for your convenience.

Once you are a registered student for the course, you do not need to reserve a space to attend any chat but can simply attend at the scheduled time. Visit the Live Chat Forums page for dates, times, and topics.

Registration is now closed for the August 8 - August 28, 2005 course.

Online students will receive 8.0 continuing education credits upon the successful completion of the program. ONS is accredited as a provider of continuing education in nursing by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation. ONS is also accredited by the California Board of Registered Nursing, Provider #2850.
