What Nurses Have Said About Our APHON Course:

Linda H. RN, CA

An excellent course and the instructor is highly knowledgable and helpful. A definite plus to be able to take this course virtually and save the cost of travel/hotels/gas.

The value previous participants reported to them after taking the course to them and their organization: 

  • It was extremely helpful in connecting the dots on things my unit never taught me.

  • Information was very well presented and reinforced in creative ways. The information is very valuable to my current practice and the organization I work for.

  • Very valuable. I learned so much and will now be able to help my unit with the chemo patients. We have been short staffed on chemo trained nurses so this will make a difference!

  • This workshop was very beneficial and I am glad that I was required to take the course. My understanding of chemo/bio administration has grown so much just in the 2 short days.

  • I loved this workshop and how interactive it was. The interactive games and handouts really helped me retain everything I was learning. There are not many pediatric infusion nurses in my facility so I believe that it will be of great value for my organization to have my new expertise and skills.

  • Very helpful and informative; Stephanie did a great job of explaining things in terms that could be easily understood!

  • It is very informative I am learning a lot of information especially since I have not given chemo before. Very glad I took this course.

  • It's a good refresher that has opened my eyes to some things that might need be addressed/changed on my unit.
