    Nurse Practitioner educators have frequently asked NSO for risk education materials for use in their classrooms. Given this, NSO has developed a process to make it easy for educators to regularly receive NSO risk education material.

    This link will take you to a page on the NSO site where you can register for their Educator Program. Through this page you will be able to indicate the type of material you would like to receive (case studies, risk management checklists, newsletters or articles), how frequently you'd like to receive it, and your preferred format.
