You will have an enhanced understanding of the material covered in class by your active participation in the pre-work. It will assure that you are able to join in demonstrations and discussion during class. To be successful in the course, RN's are required to attend ALL 4 of the computer sessions. Each session will provide participants time to work on their online course modules and allow time to discuss questions or concerns with a chemotherapy/biotherapy expert.
