Self-Paced Online Classes   

The Center for Continued Nursing Learning at PLU is pleased to offer online, self-paced classes for the busy nurses who need contact hours. Participants can register at any time and will receive an email with information on how to complete the class on their own time.

Despite improvements in the diagnosis, patients still manage to go undiagnosed until later in life due to decreased knowledge and familiarity with the syndrome. This education is an attempt to increase the participant’s knowledge and familiarity with PWS to improve recognition. Evidence-based resources on PWS will also accompany the presentation.

     

    Participants can register at any time and will receive an email with information on how to complete the class on their own time. This is not a live session, but an asynchronous session.
