The first renewal will occur within two years of attending a pediatric chemotherapy/biotherapy provider course and achieving a passing score on the post-test and will then occur every three years after that. This is an essential part of the Pediatric Chemotherapy/Biotherapy Provider Program, which allows all Providers to keep pace with the ever-changing advancement in medicine and technology.
This online program asks participants to read updated administration material, take a post-test, and complete an evaluation. Upon successful completion, participants will be awarded two continuing nursing education (NCPD) contact hours.
Content of the Program
- Drug Shortages
- Fertility Preservation
- Neurotoxicities of Chemotherapy and Biotherapy
- Small Molecule Inhibitors
The renewal exam consists of 25 questions, and you must achieve a minimum score of 80% to pass. If you are unsuccessful in your first attempt, you will be permitted to retake the exam one time at no additional cost. If you do not achieve a passing score after two attempts, you will be required to retake the 2-day provider course.
As a result of participating in this educational activity, the learner will gain specific knowledge, according to national standards, that is needed to safely and consistently administer chemotherapy and biotherapy to children and adolescents. Post-testing and evaluations will evidence the measurement of this outcome.
