Workplace Violence: The Nurse Victim

ANA has a recently updated CE offering on nurse victims of workplace violence. It’s your standard article-posttest format. Cost is $20 ($15 for ANA members) for 1.52 CEUs. The focus of this course is a bit different than what you might initially think–there’s more of a secondary trauma bent following victimization (rather than a lateral violence focus, as is often the case with a lot of these offerings).

Course objectives:

1.    Describe secondary traumatization to care providers.
2.    Describe the signs of stress and anxiety disorders associated with secondary traumatization.
3.    Discuss interventions which assist the victim to deal with the sequelae of secondary traumatization.
4.    Discuss prevention strategies.
