National Nursing Standards Legitimize Cannabis Nursing

Cannabis Nurses Network Steps in as Essential Resource for Medical Marijuana Education

SAN DIEGO – December 10, 2018 /Canna Newswire/ –  When the National Council of State Boards of Nursing released guidelines for cannabis patient care, it simultaneously validated the legitimacy of cannabis nursing, and underscored the immediate necessity for medical professionals to gain practical medical marijuana patient care education. Cannabis Nurses Network, a professional education and development network, is producing the only conference where licensed medical professionals can get the education recommended in the NCSBN Guidelines; essential cannabis knowledge, clinical recommendations, administration and ethical considerations are integral to the programming. Cannabis Nurses Network Conference (CNNC) comes to San Diego, California February 28th-March 2nd, 2019.

“Cannabis Nurses are revolutionizing the future of plant-based healthcare. In response to a national shift that is currently occurring in healthcare, and specifically within the nursing profession, it has become imperative to provide nurses with access to high-level education involving the science, research, and implementation required for sustaining evidence-based practice regarding cannabis patients. CNN is heeding the call to deliver this important education during CNNC,” says the Founder of CNN and longtime advocate Heather Manus, RN.

National nursing guidelines and recommendations regarding cannabis related issues have recently been published highlighting required areas for nurses to seek continued education.

People are using legal cannabis products in nearly every state in our nation, with or without medical advice. Nurses are the patients’ lifeline, the heartbeat of healthcare, the ones who must learn and understand the importance of the human endocannabinoid system.

Cannabis Nurses Network is stepping in as an international resource for cannabis patient care with the conference, and an online fundamentals curriculum addressing medical marijuana education, scheduled for release in early 2019. The Cannabis Nurses Network Conference offers accredited continuing education, while bringing together thought leaders, educators and authors in medical cannabis education to advance the quality of cannabis patient care around the globe.

420MEDIA has been named an official media partner for the Cannabis Nurses Network Conference.
