Sickle Cell Disease Nursing Bootcamp II

Memphis, TN US

This initiative will be an opportunity offered for nurses to learn the care of sickle cell patients in an academic setting with instructors who are education, sickle cell disease and research specialists.

Sickle cell disease is one of the most common hematologic disorders and is prevalent in the Mid-South, but education and resources are severely lacking for providers who care for patients living with the disorder.

Target Audience

Registered Nurses, Social Workers, Nurse Educators 

Learning Objectives

The objective of this project initiative is to develop a 5-day intensive boot camp for nurses to gain both theoretical and clinical expertise in the care of patients with sickle cell.
Nurses who care for patients with SCD have an opportunity to improve health outcomes and quality of life for their patients; however, this is not possible without the knowledge and clinical skills necessary to provide the specialized care sickle cell patients require.
This initiative will be the first opportunity offered for nurses to learn the care of sickle cell patients in an academic setting with instructors who are education, sickle cell disease and research specialists.
