According to the American Nursing Association, the discipline of nursing involves "the protection, promotion, and optimization of health and abilities, prevention of illness and injury, alleviation of suffering through the diagnosis and treatment of human response, and advocacy in the care of individuals, families, communities, and populations." Nowhere is this more relevant than in providing care for families affected by a diagnosis of autism.
Nursing training opportunities at Marcus Autism Center range from structured shadowing and observations at the undergraduate level to extended mentoring relationships for advance practitioners. To explore training opportunities in this area, students should contact the training office. For continuing education options, consult the Children's Healthcare of Atlanta CME calendar.
