In Celebration of National Nurses Week, the American Cannabis Nurses Association will be sharing and presenting “Every Patient Deserves a Nurse” at Women Grow Signature Networking Events on Thursday, May 7
What is a Cannabis Nurse? The rapidly changing climate surrounding science & research of the endocannabinoid system and cannabinoid therapeutics, makes a nurse’s role essential within the cannabis world spectrum.
Cannabis nurses understand cannabis as a treatment within a continuum of care which involves interacting components including other drugs and treatments, state/federal laws, and the physiology of illness, disease, daily living and aging. Cannabis nurses cultivate and maintain an attitude of respect and acceptance towards people who choose to use cannabis for health and well-being.
Above all, Cannabis nurses are educators. The American Cannabis Nurses Association (ACNA) provides continued education for nurses by offering courses such as the Core Curriculum for Cannabis Nursing and the Advanced Curriculum: Beyond the Basics. Both courses will be offered as preconference workshops at the 20th Anniversary of the Clinical Conference on Cannabis Therapeutics: "Celebrating the Past -- Embracing the Future" May 21-23, West Palm Beach, Florida.
