    NADONA is pleased to announce two exciting new programs: A new Antibiotic Stewardship Certificate of Mastery (ASCOM) and Antibiotic Stewardship Specialist Certification (ASSC) programs.

    The Certificate of Mastery Program registration will launch on February 1 and be open to all NADONA members and non-members. The new NADONA Certificate of Mastery will enable Post-Acute Care and Long-Term Care facilities to fully meet the new requirements from the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services for the knowledge domain on Antibiotic Stewardship. The entire program can be completed online, and must be completed within 90 days of program registration. Cost is $199 for non-members and $99 for members.

    The content of the program also is aligned directly with the Core Elements of Antibiotic Stewardship for Nursing Homes released by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Upon completion of the certificate program, a certificate of achievement will be earned enabling participants to sit for the professional certification and continuing education credits will be awarded for nurses. Completion of this exciting new program can also be counted as continuing education towards the renewal of your NADONA Infection Prevention-Board Certification. Registration for the Certificate Program will begin on February 1 via the NADONA website.

    The new professional certification will officially launch on March 1 and be open to nursing professionals as well as pharmacists and infection preventionists. To be eligible for the new board certification in antibiotic stewardship, the NADONA Antibiotic Stewardship Certificate of Mastery (ASCOM) must first be completed. Upon completion of the ASCOM program, healthcare professionals may earn the certification by successfully passing the certification examination. More details on the certification will be announced in the coming weeks.

    For more information, please visit the NADONA website, www.nadona.org, beginning February 1 or for questions, contact Dr. Hudson Garrett via email: Hudson.garrett@nadona.org.
