Certification Review Courses
The Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association supports nurses desiring to advance their professional development with specialty certification. To better serve these nurses, we offer three self-paced online certification review courses, for the Advanced Certified Hospice and Palliative Nurse (ACHPN), Certified Hospice and Palliative Nurse (CHPN), and the Certified Hospice and Palliative Pediatric Nurse (CHPPN).
Each course is designed to assist with preparation for the hospice and palliative nurse certification exam by highlighting self-identifying topics that require further preparation and study in advance of sitting for the specialty certification examination. The educational content may also be used to increase the hospice and palliative nurse’s knowledge of general palliative nursing. Modules refer to content from their respective core curriculums, and each module addresses sections of the test content from the respective Hospice and Palliative Credentialing Center's candidate handbook.
