Welcome to FEPA, BCIT's Fast Track Education for Front Line RNs & other Health Care Providers!
This self-directed, online course is designed to ‘level up’ your knowledge to assist, in a team based approach, with the anticipated hospital acute overflow from COVID 19. The course is specifically directed at RNs and other health care providers caring for patients requiring telemetry monitoring, high acuity care, and critical care including mechanical ventilation.
The course has five modules which are accessible anytime and can be repeated as often as required. Each module includes a self-assessment to assess your current knowledge, educational content including interactive activities, printable resources and quick guides, as well as COVID-19 specific information for each content area. Two of the modules include virtually simulated patient cases designed to consolidate your knowledge. You will receive a certificate of participation after each module you complete.
