Take Advantage of Nurses Week Promotions
April 27th, 2012
By Jennifer Olin, BSN, RN
As nurses we work hard for the money, so every time I come across something free that will be of benefit I like to pay it forward. This week’s special comes courtesy of the University of Phoenix and Nurse.com.
In recognition of National Nurses Week, May 6 – May 12, these two organizations are offering up four complimentary continuing education units (CEUs) through webinars featured on the Nurse.com website. They focus on industry knowledge including current topics such as quality and safety in healthcare and advancing and leading in the nursing profession.
- Florence Nightingale: Visionary, Reformer and Nurse – This webinar focuses on how Nightingale is still relevant today and how we can use nursing’s past as an inspiration for us in the future. May 14, 2012 at 7 p.m. ET. One contact hour.
- APRN Scope of Practice: What are the Opportunities and the Challenges? – Learn about APRN’s roles, the practice barriers APRNs face, and what can be done to ensure that these nurses deliver optimal, patient-centered care. May 15, 2012 at 7 p.m. ET. One contact hour.
- The Midwifery Model of Care – This webinar explains the specialty area of advance practice nursing, the challenges, and possible solutions to these challenges. May 16, 2012 at 7 p.m. ET. One contact hour.

Although these courses are accepted by some state boards of nursing toward continuing licensing requirements, this may not be the case in all states. Please check with your own state board for applicability.
