As a registered nurse (RN), you know that continuum of care is paramount for a growing, aging population filled with individuals with complex, multilayered needs.
That’s why Shenandoah University and Inova have partnered to offer a Patient Care Navigator certificate program* for RNs through the Inova Center for Personalized Health, conveniently located just outside the Beltway, on Gallows Road in Fairfax, Virginia. The program is open to currently licensed RNs from any organizations
- This program consists of fifty-six contact hours and an eight hour preceptorship with a currently employed patient navigator
- Offered in four distinct modules in four separate weekends in fall and spring semesters
- Course cost of $3,000 is covered under most tuition reimbursement policies
- Trains you to assist patients in navigating complex health care services across the continuum of care.
- Helps build skills in delivering care coordination services within new healthcare models and patient settings
- Combines online learning with a hands-on simulation/application exercise
- Prepares you to take on the role of patient navigation for all your clients
Shenandoah University is excited to introduce this new program.
*This is a school certificate of completion for the program providing you with continuing education validation. It does not provide you any new credential; it allows you to say Shenandoah University has stated, along with the VNA, that you have met the course requirement and are competent in the material we covered. This distinction is important as you work with your facility for tuition reimbursement. Be sure to clarify it is continuing education rather than certification as the limits for this type of education are usually different.
