Adult Moderate Sedation Certification
Scenario Based Education
The Moderate Sedation Program provides a case-based scenario of a Procedural Sedation and Analgesia (PSA) procedure that is planned for outside of the operating room. The sedation continuum, increased monitoring requirements, emergency preparedness, and closed-looped communication are all part of this interactive course.
Post Test & Evaluation
The student must past the post test with a score of 80% or above to complete the online portion of the moderate sedation certification process. The online program evaluation will also be completed at this time.
The ASA guidelines for sedation state that the provider must be able to rescue at the level above the current plan for sedation. With this in mind, NSC has developed a skill verification in conjunction with the online moderate sedation component. This blended learning allows the practitioner to utilize the baseline knowledge provided within the online course and apply this during a skill verification course. This course allows the practitioner to practice airway assessment, management, and interactive case-based scenarios with a team approach.
Skill Verification Course Evaluation
After completion of the skill verification, the student is required to complete a course evaluation related to the skill verification and NSC Instructor. This private course evaluation is reviewed and monitored by NSC Faculty to assure that our courses and instructors are of the highest caliber for the student experience.
