This Nursing homestudy course, Communication for Nurses: Prevent Harmful Events and Promote Patient Safety, has been approved for 5.0 Nursing Contact Hours by Iowa Board of Nursing Provider #30. It is a textbook-based course that may be started at any time during the year. All materials are mailed to the student within approximately 10 working days of registration and students then have 8-weeks to complete their coursework. Upon completion, students return the completed post-test and evaluation form in the provided postage-paid envelope. The test is reviewed and graded, and based upon a passing score, a certificate is issued. No refunds are issued after the materials are mailed out at the start of a Homestudy course, therefore, the listed refund date on any confirmation does not apply.
