Learning is both — web-based and hands-on
The Health Care Training Academy continuing education modules/activities are employer driven and are designed to meet the career needs of professional nurses. Course and activities are designed to stimulate learning in an interactive online environment in which teaching/learning strategies include comprehensive case studies, discussions, and application of clinically based concepts. HAnds-on classes enhance technical skills, clinical thinking and reasoning.
Each course or activity generates from 2 to 30 contact hours, uses current evidence to support concept development and focuses on knowledge, skills and professional attitudes. CEUs are earned upon successful completion of course outcomes.
