National S.T.A.B.L.E. Instructor Course (2-day course)


Course Description

Our two-day National Instructor courses are designed to prepare Lead Instructors for local or regional Learner / Provider Course implementation. Support instructor candidates are also welcome to attend the Instructor course. This program has been approved by the California Board of Registered Nurses, Provider Number 15417, for 13.75 contact hours of continuing nursing education.

Who is an ideal S.T.A.B.L.E. Lead Instructor candidate? Someone with an interest in teaching who is also an expert in neonatal intensive care, such as a...

Neonatologist, neonatal nurse practitioner, pediatrician experienced in neonatal intensive care, neonatal physician assistant, neonatal transport nurse, NICU clinical nurse educator or specialist, neonatal transport respiratory therapist, respiratory therapist with a well-developed neonatal background, outreach educator with tertiary intensive care nursery background, experienced ICN nurse / nurse preceptor.

Instructor candidates must meet the qualifications for Lead or Support Instructor to attend. Please review the qualifications before registering. Review Instructor Classifications and Qualifications

Register for the National Instructor Course and/or Cardiac Module

If registering for the Instructor and Cardiac Module courses, a $25.00 discount will be applied when registering.

Pre-Assessment Testing
Upon registering for the Instructor course, all Instructor candidates will be emailed a pre-assessment which is intended to be taken closed-book and without the assistance of another colleague or resources. This pre-assessment should be viewed as the Instructor Candidate’s opportunity to identify their own knowledge strengths and potential weaknesses. Upon arrival at the Instructor course, candidates will have an opportunity to self-grade their own test. Or, if preferred, the pre-assessment can be scored before the course by the S.T.A.B.L.E. Program staff. Instructions will be supplied when the pre-test is emailed regarding how to submit the pre-assessment for scoring.

Please note the following about the pre assessment scores and eligibility to register as an Instructor:
  1. The average score for Instructor candidates is 85% and higher.
  2. If you score between 70% and 62.5% (12 to 15 wrong) we do not think that you are ready for the Lead Instructor role at this time. Rather, if you would like to proceed as an Instructor, we will register you as a Support Instructor when the time comes at the course to register.
  3. If you score 60% or below (16 or more wrong), you are scoring well below the average for Instructor candidates and we cannot register you as an Instructor. We are happy to award you with a Learner course completion card upon successful completion of the mixed module test.
Please note, no refunds will be provided to those who either do not qualify for Lead Instructor or who are not eligible to be registered as an Instructor because of low pre-test scores.

Please join us for a dinner hosted by Clinical Innovations, Inc. to learn about:
