This CE offering is ideal for the nurse practitioner seeking a detailed refresher on the advanced introductory principles of pharmacology and prescribing medications. Use it to keep your medication fundamentals up-to-date.

The session begins by presenting indispensable, respected resources regarding drug information and clinical practice guidelines. It also recommends best practices for literature retrieval via search engines and electronic sources. It then provides a detailed discussion of key pharmacological topics that will augment both the nurse practitioner’s background knowledge and his or her ability to proceed with informed confidence while prescribing and recommending medications. This offering contains a thorough discussion of the following topics:

  • History of drug regulation
  • Stages of drug development and approval
  • Understanding drug names
  • Federal drug classification and schedules
  • Prescription writing
  • Phases of drug action
  • Pharmacodynamics
