Differential Diagnosis Across the Life Span is a comprehensively designed course for nurse practitioners (NPs) looking to go beyond advanced physical assessment and sharpen their differential diagnosis skills. This course provides analysis of differential diagnoses for the most common disorders encountered by NPs working in a variety of settings, including family, adult, pediatric, internal medicine, and urgent care practices.

Presented in 26 dynamic video modules and supplemented with rigorous review questions, Differential Diagnosis Across the Life Span will empower the nurse practitioner to take their skills to the next level in the following areas:

  • Identification of key features in formulating differential diagnoses
  • Case-specific diagnosis application
  • First-line management of common disorders
  • Clinical differences in presentations of the elderly
  • Pediatric considerations
  • Pharmacotherapeutic considerations
  • …and more!

This extensive course was developed by a board of nationally recognized faculty whose hard work and creativity have made the final product enjoyable, challenging, and fun! Our case studies, audience response questions, and in-depth audio content ensure that the nurse practitioner will remain engaged throughout the entire 45-hour course.

How It Works

  1. Log in at www.NPcourses.com
  2. Go to My Account in the upper right corner and click on Courses.
  3. Locate your Course in the list and click on it.
  4. Click on Access Course to proceed.
  5. PowerPoint handouts are available for every lecture under “Materials.” We strongly recommend that you download and print each lecture’s handout so that you may highlight and take notes as you view each video. 
  6. Please note that there is information covered in the video lectures that will not be on the handouts, so you must watch the video in its entirety. It is very important to spend time studying all PowerPoint handouts and to watch all course lecture(s) before attempting to take the required quiz.
  7. Each quiz includes 5 items to complete in 10 minutes. Participants have a maximum of 3 attempts to pass each exam with a score of 70% or higher.
  8. After successful completion of the quiz, participants must complete a Course Evaluation.
  9. Upon submission of the Course Evaluation, your Continuing Education Certificate will appear for you to print and/or save in PDF format. We strongly recommend that you print or save the certificate immediately, as your certificate will not be stored in your account indefinitely.
