The Association of Rehabilitation Nurses (ARN) has launched the Restorative Nursing Assistant Online Course, a self-paced online and interactive program, designed to teach a broad overview of the concepts and basic skills expected of a nursing assistant in a restorative nursing environment. This course is ideal for facilities looking to provide consistent, flexible, and personalized core training to their nursing assistant staff, as well as individual nursing assistants seeking to develop a foundation in restorative nursing practice.
The full course is made up of five modules, each focusing on a set of restorative nursing topics or concepts, mirroring the content of the ARN Restorative Nursing: A Training Manual for Nursing Assistants publication.
Learners will receive a certificate of completion for four contact hours upon completion of the course and online evaluation.
Five modules in this course cover:
• Module One: Philosophy of Restorative Nursing, Dispelling the Myths of Aging & Nursing Assistants Role in Restorative Care
• Module Two: Mobility & Activities of Daily Living
• Module Three: Swallowing/Communication & Cognition
• Module Four: Bladder, Bowel & Skin Care
• Module Five: Therapeutic Activities & Caregiver Challenges
The Restorative Nursing Assistant course is being delivered in a unique and highly effective online environment called amplifire™. This platform uses a “question & answer” format and a sophisticated algorithm to enable students to achieve a higher level of mastery of the content, acquire it faster, and retain it longer.
