The goal of this 3 part webinar series is to equip nurses with the practical skills of application so that nurses can confidently incorporate cannabis into their practice. Each week will build on the previous topics, and will include time for live Q&A time with the speaker for those who are on the live event.

Putting Cannabis Nursing Into Practice
We have created a set of tools that you can use to begin immediately incorporating practical application of cannabis medicine with your patients.
Part of what makes working with other nurses so important, is the ability to ask questions, confirm choices and generally have a sounding board of professionals to guide you along the way. Even cannabis nurses need these important connections.
Meet the Clinical Brain Trust – a private group for nurses who are actively applying cannabis medicine to their patients, where you can ask other practicing nurses for insights, help on specific patient issues, etc.
Along with this private group, we have created a downloadable, customizable Cannabis Nurse Entrepreneur Toolkit with essential document templates, guidelines and recommendations you can use to guide your practical applications in your patient practice.
This toolkit and clinical practice group upgrade will be available for purchase soon!
If this first series proves successful and valuable to our members, we will expand the webinar series to include specialty modules to review common patient considerations and symptom targeting for cancer, pediatrics, mental health, chronic pain, neuro, gut, immune system, etc.
If you are not an Annual or Founding Cannabis Nurses Network member, now is a great time to upgrade your membership for access to these incredible webinars!
