From Cranial to Spine:​ An Overview of Neurosurgical Topics for the Advanced Practice Provider

The purpose of this course is to provide nurse practitioners (NPs), physician assistants (PAs) and other advanced practice providers (APPs) an overview of a wide variety of neurosurgical topics through lectures and case studies. Featuring a diverse range of neurosurgeon and APP faculty, this course gives attendees a unique learning opportunity that includes different tracks and/or breakout sessions that allow APPs to customize their own educational experience.

The AANS is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing medical education (CME) for physicians.

We anticipate offering Nursing Contact Hours and will be submitting an application to the Ohio Nurses Association (OBN-001-91) for approval to award contact hours. The Ohio Nurses Association is accredited as an approver of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC) Commission on Accreditation.

Attending the From Cranial to Spine: An Overview of Neurosurgical Topics for the Advanced Practice Provider course is a smart investment for your employer. As organizations are limiting travel and continuing education budgets, it is helpful to provide justification for attending educational programming. This toolkit offers resources to help you do that.
