Summary of the Changes:
Changes in clinical practice needs and accreditation requirements dictate that a rather than having the subject matter related to pain management threaded through several different courses, these topics will be better addressed in a separate course specifically dealing with pain management. Accordingly, it is proposed that a new course titled “Advanced Modalities in Pain Management” be added to the fourth semester of the seven semester graduate program in anesthesiology nursing. This will increase the credit hours for this program of study from 92 to 95 credits.  (Click here to view the Program of study)
