Course description

This hands-on simulated experience course is intended for providers who must be sedation certified. This course has pre-course requirements that consist of two online modules and post-tests. Modules must be completed no more than 30 days prior to class and the certificate of completion or training transcript must be shown at registration to attend the in-person skills validation session.

The in-person skills validation session consists of simulated case studies through use of a Human Patient Simulator (HPS). The focus is on the nurse’s role in providing safe, high-quality care for adult and/or pediatric patients at all phases along the sedation continuum. Effective team behaviors and communication skills will be incorporated throughout the curriculum, and participants will have an opportunity to practice management of a sedated patient during the simulation portion of the course. This course emulates the nurse’s workflow, stressing the importance of appropriate assessment, monitoring, early identification of complications and timely interventions, when caring for patients undergoing sedation. Participants who complete this course will receive validation of the sedation skills checklist.
