TMC Collaborative: Medical-Surgical Certification Review Course

August 3, 2022 to August 4, 2022

Medical-Surgical nurses today are called upon to provide competent patient care for increasingly complex and diverse patient populations. This Medical-Surgical Certification Review course reviews common anatomy and physiology, highlights advancements in evidence-based practice, and reinforces quality patient care.

Target Audience

Registered Nurses seeking certification in medical-surgical nursing.

Learning Objectives

At the completion of this course, the nurse will be better prepared to demonstrate clinical knowledge on a medical-surgical board-certification examination.  

Nursing Learning Outcome:

Following completion of this activity, the nurse will be able to describe common medical surgical pathophysiology and treatments as evidenced by self-reported knowledge gained on the post-activity evaluation tool. 

Additional Information:

Board certification may be obtained either via the American Nurses Credentialing Center (Medical Surgical Nurse - Board Certified (MedSurg-BC)) or the Medical Surgical Nursing Certification Board (Certified Medical-Surgical Registered Nurse (CMSRN)) if the RN meets eligibility requirements as specified by the licensing board.
