What's your practice setting? I feel that this makes a difference on what educational offering you should take.

Unfortunately, I don't work in that setting and the resources I know won't help you. Hopefully, someone who has a similar role can help.

Thank you so much for all the information NRSKarenRN! I have seen some of the Carolyn's Youtube videos, they are really informative. Will check out her articles on Medscape too. Thanks for all the links!

What setting do you work? What resources do you have? I think anything would help.

Thank you so much for the information! This reminds me that the long term care society also has something similar.
