"POLARIS has saved the day with virtual orientation during the Coronavirus."

"POLARIS is an excellent teaching tool for understanding hospice and palliative care. I thoroughly enjoyed working through each module and I feel better equipped with beginning my career as a hospice nurse. It helped to answer many of my questions about hospice care."



POLARIS is a state-of-the art eLearning resource consisting of 13 modules that are designed to provide essential practice knowledge for clinicians working with hospice and palliative care patients. The multimedia modules are crafted with short bursts of information that are incorporated into practical application through engaging learning activities. The modules are filled with case studies, videos, and future recommended activities for independent or preceptor-assisted learning that supports critical thinking skills. 

Other benefits to this online learning approach include:

  • Self-paced eLearning with interactions and resources embedded in each module

  • Successful completion of POLARIS modules results in a maximum of 30 hours of Nursing Continuing Education

  • POLARIS modules can be purchased individually, as a total package, or as a complete orientation program that includes all 13 modules and learner & preceptor guides

HPNA is pleased to present this robust educational offering to equip nurses to do what they do best—provide compassionate care for individuals with advanced illness.
