Hospice of Michigan Institute Offers Review Course for Generalist Hospice and Palliative Nurse Certification

Detroit, February 2, 2015 – The Hospice of Michigan Institute will offer a review course for Generalist Hospice and Palliative Nurse certification in five cities across the state.

The course – dubbed a power study session – will be led by Sheria Robinson, a certified hospice and palliative care nurse, and shown via video teleconference at the Hospice of Michigan offices in Big Rapids, Detroit, Gaylord, Grand Rapids and Saginaw. The course is open to nurses outside of HOM.

Participants will receive testing tips for the RN Hospice and Palliative Certification Exam, among other valuable information, and earn seven credits toward continuing education.

The review course will be held 8:30 a.m. to 5 p.m. Feb. 25. The cost is $35 for HOM employees and students or $85 for non-Hospice of Michigan staff.

The Hospice of Michigan Institute conducts review courses on an ongoing basis to prepare eligible staff for these exams.
