Johns Hopkins School of Nursing Offers Free Online Course in Administering COVID-19 Vaccination

The Johns Hopkins School of Nursing has launched a free online course to help individuals, health departments, and other community organizations be trained to administer COVID-19 vaccination. The course is built on the faculty expertise and research, and covers vaccine safety, hesitancy, preparation, administration, and side effects.

“In addition to getting widespread vaccination, it is critically important that health professionals and communities administering the vaccine have correct information regarding safety, proper injection, and how to help people who are hesitant about receiving the vaccine,” says Jason Farley, PhD, MPH, ANP-BC, FAAN, FAANP, AACRN, professor and one of the course developers. “This course offers an excellent compendium of COVID-19 vaccine information to prepare the workforce and to increase the number of people who are vaccinated.”

The course, “JHU COVID-19 Vaccination Training Program,” can be completed through a series of nine video modules offering concise and evidence-based information. The modules include:

COVID-19 Vaccination Importance and Safety
COVID-19 Vaccination Hesitation
Syringes and Needles
Preparing the Vaccine for IM Injection
Administering a Vaccine as an IM Injection
Vaccination Demonstration
Vaccine Allergic Reactions and Side Effects
Two conclusion courses

“Nurses have been on the frontlines throughout the entire COVID-19 pandemic, and their expertise and insight is again needed to help get vaccines to as many people as possible,” says JHSON dean Patricia Davidson, PhD, MEd, RN, FAAN. “We are incredibly excited that we are able to play such a valuable role in slowing and eventually ending the COVID-19 pandemic.”
