Nurses May Benefit From Free Online Continuing Education Course
Here’s some bit of good news on the net.
Employment of registered nurses (RNs) is expected to grow by 22% through 2018, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. As a result, a growing number of campus-based and online universities are launching new bachelor’s and master’s degree programs for those who wish to launch careers in this field as well as those who are currently employed as nurses.
For example, officials from Jacksonville University (JU) recently announced in a press release that the school will sponsor a free nursing continuing education course in conjunction with Nurse.com. The one-credit continuing education unit (CEU), which is called Networking for Career Advancement, will be free starting March 1.
Free Online Course for Nurses course was created to boost nurses’ networking skills, which can be valuable for finding employment, promotions and salary increases.
“Our faculty is comprised of accomplished nurses who know firsthand just how hard nurses work,” said Judith M. Erickson, dean of JU’s School of Nursing. “Sponsoring this free nurse CEU will make it a little easier for RNs to complete their [continuing education] and maintain their licenses.”
