Influenza and Immunization Learning Module for Nurses

The Influenza Illness & Immunization learning module is a narrated presentation intended to provide education to registered nurses who will be administering influenza vaccine in Prince Edward Island. The objective of the learning module is to promote influenza immunization with the overall goal of preventing influenza illness.

What is covered in the Influenza Illness and Immunization learning module?

The learning module will review:

  • influenza disease;
  • vaccines available for the 2017-2018 season in PEI; and
  • protocols for administering the vaccine.

How long will the module take?

You can review this video in about 40-45 minutes.

Why do I need to take this module?

Immunization is within the scope of practice of a registered nurse, however it may not be a significant part of your practice. The module is not intended to certify competency in immunization.  It is a recommended review as influenza vaccine products may change every year and a review of the product monographs is a required practice. In addition, your employer may have a policy in place where this learning module is a requirement. Please check with your manager prior to immunizing.
