                           COOPER UNIVERSITY HOSPITAL


In keeping with the hospital’s mission to of being committed to world-class patient care, education,
and research resulting in a healthier community, the Nursing education Department at Cooper
University Hospital (CUH) offers an ever-increasing variety of educational activities to our staff. The
quality and quantity of educational programs available at CUH has been unsurpassed for many
years. Because of our excellent reputation for educational programs, nurses from many other health
care facilities have attended Cooper courses. In an effort to assist staff members in meeting their
professional goals, Cooper offers programs for all levels of staff and supports their efforts through
NJSNA approved programs, tuition reimbursement, college and trade school affiliations, and on-
campus courses.

As a New Jersey State Nurse Association (NJSNA) Provider, our continuing nursing education
programs are developed around specific goals and objectives with content that incorporates the
latest clinical and nursing research. Programs are delivered using a variety of educational
methods: case studies, discussion, lecture, and group work. We utilize the most qualified speakers
who are experts in their topics. Many of the speakers are members of the Department of Education
or University medical staff who teach at Cooper and are nationally recognized for their expertise,
speaking at many national conferences. We sometimes use speakers from other educational
institutions or consultants, in an effort to provide the best current information.

Another important part of our education office is the Life Support Training Center. The Life Support
Training Team at Cooper is committed to educating the public and professional communities in
emergency cardiovascular care. Through an alliance with the American Heart Association, classes
are offered in basic life support, advanced cardiac life support, and pediatric life support. The Life
Support staff includes board-certified physicians, nurses, respiratory therapists, paramedics, EMTs
and others with specialized training and experience.

We are pleased to offer our 2011 Educational Course Catalog for your review. We believe that
continuing education and professional development are essential in supporting our clinical mission
and an integral part of retaining and recruiting staff. We hope you will join us for some of these
excellent educational programs

Research Mentor Training
Interested in Research? Want to get your unit involved in Research? Just curious? Come to the
research Mentor training and learn our approach to clinical nursing research. This approach,
developed by Dr. Marianne Chulay, is quite different and more clinician friendly than the traditional
academic research process you learned (or tried to) in school. Its proven success can be seen in
the large number of unit-based nursing research projects currently in progress or nearing
completion at Cooper. Become a Research Mentor and assist in making Cooper one of the most
successful facilities for clinician initiated research. Meet colleagues who share an interest in
research. Ongoing hands-on help from the Research Coordinator in developing and completing
projects is available to all Research Mentors. You don’t have to do it alone! No experience needed!

Cancer Chemotherapy and Biotherapy Course
Course Overview
The ONS Cancer Chemotherapy and Biotherapy Course is designed to encourage consistent practice
among registered nurses who administer chemotherapy and/or biotherapy. The program provides a
comprehensive review of the theoretical knowledge needed to administer chemotherapy and/or
biotherapy. The educational program is based on the Society’s Cancer Chemotherapy and Biotherapy
Guidelines and Recommendations for Practice, 2005 edition.

Didactic Component
The two-day didactic course provides a broad spectrum of information concerning cellular kinetics,
drug classifications, safe handling and administration, management of side effects, patient teaching
strategies, and case studies related to the theoretical concepts presented. Upon successful
completion of the course and a post-course test, participants will receive a laminated Cancer
Chemotherapy Card from ONS. This validates that the participant has the theoretical foundation
needed to administer chemotherapy and/or biotherapy. This card is valid for two years and may be
renewed by completion of an independent study. Please note that participants must be registered
nurses with a minimum of six months of oncology-specific experience. Please be prepared to
provide your nursing license number on the day of the class to allow ONS to register you as a
chemotherapy provider.

Pediatric Code Review Course
This four-hour course is designed to prepare the nurse for a Code White or medical crisis situation.
The first portion of the course reviews how to check the code cart, the contents of the code cart and
broselow cart, primary and secondary ABCD assessment, the nurse’s role before and after the code
team arrives, the roles of the code team members and how to correctly complete the Code
Blue/White resuscitation record. The second portion of the course is conducted in the simulation
lab. Hands-on crisis situations are created using Simman and Simbaby. This hands-on portion of the
course is designed so that the nurse may practice, in a purely learning environment, how to react to
crisis or emergent situations. Space is limited in this course so please register early!

There are many Internet sites available that provide continuing nursing education (ce, cne)
opportunities. Below are a few sites that offer ANCC approved programs. Most have a
fee, but many professional organizations such as the ANA and American Association of
Critical-Care Nurses, offer free education programs to their members. By doing an internet
search, you may find additional resources.

IMPORTANT NOTE: Before deciding to take any online continuing education, check that
the programs are accredited. Some will say they are approved, but do not indicate the
approving organization. Select programs that are approved by AACN (American Nurses
Credentialing Center) to insure the credits are acceptable for license renewal.
