Sedation Online Course

Moderate Sedation Online Course for Nurses

Why this course was developed:

JCAHO in the early 90s identified a discrepancy in the training and monitoring of non-anesthesia nurses doing sedation. Capt. Michael Eslinger, the creator of this program, was appointed to a committee at naval hospital Jacksonville, Florida to develop standards within the hospital to meet JCAHO standards, audits and quality assurance issues.

Capt. Eslinger, after retiring from the Navy, was approached by a number of hospitals requesting the use of the four hour certification program he had developed. Because of the obvious void in training, certification and a deficiency in the common standard of knowledge for non-sedation registered nurses, MDs; moderate sedation certification was developed into a standardized training program to meet all of JCAHO, AAAHC and the NIHO Accreditation sedation standards. Sedation certification developed by Capt. Eslinger is the only course of its kind.
