Pennsylvania Child Abuse Recognition and Reporting - REQUIRED - 2 Contact Hours - This course offers an overview of the historically evolving role of mandated reporters and a description of child welfare services in Pennsylvania. It provides nurses with details of the legal requirements imposed on mandated reporters of child abuse. The course defines the statutory (legal) components of child abuse, including what does and does not constitute child abuse. The course outlines the provisions and responsibilities for reporting such abuse by distinguishing between individuals designated as “mandatory reporters” and those deemed to be “permissive reporters.” Clear instructions are provided for navigating the reporting process, and the ways in which reporters are protected under the law are outlined. Lastly, the course details the indicators essential to recognizing abuse. Human trafficking is also addressed, including child labor trafficking and sex trafficking, and the risk factors and warning signs for both. The course provides nurses in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania with the knowledge and tools they need to fulfill their legal responsibility to report suspected child abuse. This course fulfills the requirement that all Pennsylvania nurses complete 2 hours of Board-approved continuing education in child abuse recognition and reporting requirements as a condition of their license renewal.
