Health Department Offers Seminar For Nurses


Share post:

Nurse1With the enactment of the Hero Act on July 22, 2008, New Jersey has become the first state in the Union to advocate that its residents have the fundamental responsibility to choose whether to save another person’s life. The Hero Act was designed to create a more dynamic and comprehensive public policy regarding organ and tissue donation. It also includes the provision that “within three years, nurses licensed prior to the Act will be required to complete a one credit hour course developed by experts, in order to be re-licensed.”

The Verona Health Department and SENSA, the Suburban Essex Nurse Supervisor’s Association, will offer a program that meets the requirement for RN re-licensure on Monday, May 20, from 4 to 5 p.m. in the Verona Community Center, 880 Bloomfield Avenue. There is no cost associated with this program

The presenter is Barbara Turci, RN, BSN, CPTC, donation education manager for the NJ Sharing Network.

To register or for more information, please contact Donna Williams at 973.680.4065 or by e-mail.
