NU675-7D-LA Unit 6 Assignment – MAT Training Herzing
For this assignment, you will complete the Medication Assisted Treatment (MAT) training available through SAMSHA.
- The website to access the training is https://pcssnow.org/medications-for-opioid-use-disorder/waiver-training-for-nurses/ (Links to an external site.)
- Click on Nurse Practitioners and start the 8 hour MAT Waiver Training Course.
This is the first of 2 courses. The second course will be completed in a future module. At the completion of both courses, you will be eligible to apply for a DEA X Waiver for Buprenorphine MAT. There is some discussion that this requirement may be removed in the future for clinical providers. Regardless, the training is essential to prescribing and treating with these medications. Please also save your certificates so you can present them to future employers as completed.
