Anticipatory Guidance Continuing Education

So much is going to happen between birth and 21 years of age—for children, teens, and their families! 

Start your age-based journey on anticipatory guidance with 3 new modules of PNCB CE. 

Whether you’re new to pediatric nursing or want a refresher about how to structure proactive discussions with families to provide education, screenings, and assessments that nurture young lives, this module will support your daily practice. Providing anticipatory guidance is a core element of pediatric primary care, so this may be especially helpful for nursing professionals transitioning from hospital/acute care settings to primary care.
