Expiration Date: May 22, 2020

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.

Pre-approved by the PA Dept. of Public Welfare and the PA Dept. of Professional & Occupational Affairs to fulfill the 2 hour child abuse recognition and reporting CE requirement.

Expiration Date: December 31, 2019

Nurses have been educated to practice professional nursing and use their specialized skills to care for patients. Unfortunately, most nurses are not knowledgeable or skilled enough in leadership to effect the required changes in health care today. Nurses must expand their repertoire of knowledge and skills to practice in today's multifaceted healthcare environment, especially their leadership skills.

The purpose of this course is to provide nurses with a solid foundation for effective nursing leadership and management. Nurses practicing in any healthcare setting will gain new knowledge or enhance previously acquired knowledge regarding leadership and management concepts such as leadership theory and principles, healthcare policy, legal issues and ethics, change and decision making, organizational structure and effective care delivery, healthcare economics, staff recruitment and retention, and leadership tools and resources.
