There is a publication delay for the Fifth Edition of the Core Curriculum for the Hospice and Palliative Registered Nurse, due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic. Due to the 2015 publication date of the current edition and HPNA’s commitment to providing up to date resources, HPNA has removed the Core Curriculum for the Registered Nurse, Fourth Edition, 2015 from the shop. The new updated Sixth edition of the Core Curriculum for the Registered Nurse will be available for purchase on January 15, 2022.

The Core Curriculum is an essential tool for the Hospice and Palliative RN. The Core Curriculum offers information in all aspects of hospice and palliative registered nursing practice. It reflects evidence-based evidence and the fourth edition of the National Consensus Project For Quality Palliative Care Clinical Practice Guidelines. This fourth edition contains the important elements of the CHPN Detailed Content Outline. It includes an overview of hospice and palliative care, the interdisciplinary team, patterns of disease progression, pain and symptom management, psychiatric/psychological symptoms, care of the family, care across settings, advance care planning, end of life, ethical issues, and policy and economic issues. There is also a section that includes common assessment tools, common medications, and resources for studying for the CHPN examination.
