Medical Cannabis Nurse Certificate 

Medical cannabis is gaining momentum in America with more states legalizing its use, promising research emerging and dispensaries opening up across the country. Yet medical professionals received no education on cannabis as a therapeutic option in their medical training.


With many states authorizing medical cannabis use for various specified medical conditions, all healthcare professionals (not just those working in dispensaries) benefit from attending The Training Academy for Medical Cannabis continuing education.

These professionals need customized training that keeps pace with the latest discoveries in the field.  This live interactive training is not more engaging than the recorded courses offered elsewhere.

The course covers the following topics:

  • The History of Cannabis

  • State and federal regulations 

  • The Endocannabinoid System

  • Cannabis Mechanism of Action

  • Pharmacology of Cannabis

  • Terpenes

  • Best Practices in Patient Evaluation

  • Various Forms of Delivery

  • Dosing and Absorption

  • Time of Onset and Therapeutic Effects

  • Drug Interactions and Consumer Safety

  • Side Effects of Cannabis

  • Nursing Diagnosis + Treatment Plan Development

  • Ethical and Legal Implications for Cannabis Use
