1 Provide a higher level of comfort. School of Health Sciences Certificate Program in End of Life Care OFFERED ONLINE

2 Become a more accomplished caregiver. You ve dedicated yourself to caring for others. Now you want to be even better prepared to provide the highest quality of care to patients at the end of life. This 12-credit certificate program from Excelsior College* will expand your knowledge and give you the skills needed to improve patients quality of life. This online Certificate Program in End of Life Care will demonstrate to patients, employers and most important, yourself that you have expertise in this field. You can choose four courses from a curriculum that covers topics such as: pain and symptom management case management concepts of death, loss, grief and bereavement coping strategies for patients and families spirituality wound care Be part of a valued and rapidly expanding field. The need for quality end of life care is increasing. The elderly population is growing rapidly, advanced treatments are prolonging life and diagnoses are becoming more complex. Health care professionals with advanced knowledge and skills in providing end of life care are in great demand throughout the health care continuum. * formerly Regents College Balance the demands of work, family and school with this flexible and convenient online certificate program.

3 The flexibility every student needs. This certificate program is designed to fit the busy schedules of working nurses and other health care professionals. Courses are offered in 15-week modules every two months. The program can be completed in one to three years. The convenience every busy working adult demands. Courses are offered entirely online, so you can earn your certificate from the comfort of your home. That means no extra commuting. Each course has start and end dates and weekly assignments to help keep you on track, but you choose when to work and when to learn. Enjoy support every step of the way. Courses are offered online, but that doesn t mean you have to do it alone. Many of Excelsior College s extensive support services can be accessed online as well: Excelsior College Bookstore Academic advisors Electronic Peer Network Financial aid services Technology assistance Excelsior College Virtual Library Developed by leaders in the field. This program was developed by Excelsior College in collaboration with nationally known experts in end of life care. Supported by a grant from the U.S. Department of Labor, it was piloted in 26 hospices in nine states. Prepare for Certification Although the Certificate is much more than a certification prep course, the knowledge acquired will help you to successfully complete the CHPN certification examination overseen by the NBCHPN. In the Excelsior College Certificate Pilot program, 12 out of 14 students successfully passed the examination on their first attempt. I enrolled in this program to gain more knowledge and expertise in being a patient and family advocate at the end of life. The online format is more convenient for me it allows me to learn at my own pace, between heavy case loads and busy home life. I have already learned a lot about ethical issues related to death and dying, Medicare and Medicaid standards, and how different facilities provide end of life care. I will definitely apply everything I have learned in my current job. Lisa Seagroves RN Case Manager Hospice of East Texas Tyler, TX Lisa is an Excelsior College student in the online Certificate Program in End of Life Care and has a full-time job working with patients and families in their homes.
