 Continuing Nursing Education

The NC Division of Public Health Approved Provider Unit (APU) serves NC Public Health Nurses by providing continuing education in the form of evidence-based Continuing Nursing Education (CNE). The APU sits in the Public Health Nursing and Professional Development Unit. The APU provides high-quality, evidence-based continuing education that is timely and relevant to current public health nursing practice. Educational activities provided by the APU are developed primarily to meet the educational needs of NC Public Health Nurses. However, we know that Public Health Nurses do not work in a vacuum. Therefore, our courses and content areas often meet the educational needs of other public health staff, including Advanced-Practice Practitioners (NPs and PAs), physicians, and other public health professionals. The APU works independently and also partners with public, private, academic, and other public health practice entities to jointly provide CNE.

 Dispensing of Drugs by Public Health Registered Nurses

The new PHN Dispensing Training is now available below. PHN&PDU is no longer offering continuing education credits in association with the training. Your pharmacist may use these materials for training, but you will need to issue your own certificate of completion and maintain your own attendance and training agenda records for Accreditation and the Board of Pharmacy. Please continue to send a copy of the attendance roster to the office PHN&PDU each time a training is offered in your agency.
