Dr. Sally K. Miller, Nurse Practitioner and Clinical Professor at the Drexel University College of Nursing and Health Professions, will be the presenter at the University of Southern Indiana 25th annual Advanced Practice Registered Nursing (APRN) Symposium on Friday, April 28 in Carter Hall, University Center West. There are options for attendees to attend in person and virtually.

In addition to teaching physiology and pharmacology to advanced practice registered nursing students, Miller is the APRN consultant/investigator to the Nevada State Board of Nursing and maintains active clinical practices with Sahara Family Practice and iCarePsychiatry in Las Vegas, Nevada. Additionally, she is a senior associate lecturer with Fitzgerald Health Education Associates.

Miller is certified as an adult-gerontology acute care, adult-gerontology primary care, family and psychiatric-mental health nurse practitioner by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) and is a fellow of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP). She has been published in several nurse practitioner journals.

USI’s APRN Symposium is designed to provide current, practical information that will strengthen assessment skills and expand knowledge of patient management strategies. Topics this year include hypertension management, managing dyslipidemia, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease, diabetes, pharmacotherapeutics and behavioral disorders in children and adolescents. The content is appropriate for nurses, advanced practice registered nurses and other healthcare providers in ambulatory and acute care settings.

USI designates this activity for 5.75 contact hours. In addition to nurses, continuing education (CE) hours are also available for physicians, pharmacists, social workers, CHES, MCHES and Health Facility Administrators. CE hours will also be available for Indiana licensed marriage and family therapists, occupational therapists, occupational therapy assistants and dental professionals.

During this conference, 4.5 hours are specific to pharmacotherapeutics, which meets the pharmacology continuing education requirements for the renewal of the advanced practice registered nurse prescriptive authority license.

The registration cost is $130 for professionals; $60 for current graduate students; and $20 for undergraduate students.
