Designed by Teams and for Teams
Interprofessional collaboration and team‐based care are becoming increasingly important. Our approach is to deliver educational opportunities designed by the health care team for the health care team.
We partner across the university and the community to bring multiple areas of expertise into the planning process, so we can identify the most important needs and issues and create opportunities that are both educationally sound and relevant to a broader segment of health care professionals.
The Continuing Education in Nursing program at the School of Nursing is part of UW–Madison’s Interprofessional Continuing Education Partnership (ICEP), which also includes the continuing education units at the UW School of Medicine and Public Health and UW–Madison School of Pharmacy.
In support of improving patient care, the University of Wisconsin–Madison ICEP is accredited by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME) to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
The programs and events below have been planned jointly with our colleagues in the School of Medicine and Public Health and the School of Pharmacy. ANCC and Iowa Board of Nursing contact hours as well as CEUs will be awarded for all conferences. Many of these programs also award ANCC pharmacotherapeutic contact hours for advanced practice nurses.
