Industry and Professional Development

The College of Health and Human Services seeks to provide high quality and high impact continuing professional education for practitioners working in the fields of health and human services.

Developing our workforce, and providing opportunities for lifelong learning, are examples of how we engage with our community to form strong academic-community partnerships.  We truly learn with and from each other when we collaborate on expanding our knowledge and developing new skills.

Whether it is through professional development workshops, simulation learning experiences, or continuing education programs, we strive to meet the needs of our industry partners.

  • For those in the clinical research industry, FuseCR offers timely and engaging professional development opportunities in the form of short courses and workshops.
  • The North Carolina Public Health Training Center (NCPHTC) is our training and development initiative designed to provide free training to the state’s public health workforce. In partnership with Emory University in Atlanta, the NCPHTC provides in-person and virtual trainings to meet the demands of practitioners working in population health.

Psychiatric Nursing Care in Medical Settings

Saturday, April 6, 2019
8:00 a.m. - 5:00 p.m.
McNeill Hall - UNCW Campus

Nurses in medical settings are more frequently caring for patients who need significant psychiatric care, but for a variety of reasons, need to be housed outside of the psychiatric unit in the hospital. These nurses often state they are not well prepared for this kind of work. The lack of adequate preparation can lead to patient harm, gaps in quality patient care or other negative patient outcomes.

The College of Health and Human Services at UNC Wilmington is pleased to host this continuing education opportunity in partnership with the School of Nursing for practicing nurses and students on the care of psychiatric patients in a variety of medical settings. Details here.
