Structural empowerment: Boosting professional practice
CE639
Structural empowerment includes staff involvement in structures of an organization that results in an empowered nursing professional practice. Nurses in these environments enjoy job satisfaction, autonomy and dedication to their organizations.
Bringing Magnet designation into the community setting
WEB315
Regardless of work setting, research shows that a Magnet designated organization is linked to less nurse burnout and improved job satisfaction. Learn about the research regarding Magnet principles and how organizations outside of the hospital setting can achieve Magnet designation.
What is meaningful use and how does it affect my practice?
WEB304
Meaningful use, CMS, quality of care, and the electronic health record: What does it all mean? How do these healthcare aspects influence healthcare today? There are three phases involved in reaching the meaningful use goal. If you’re unsure how to discuss meaningful use in your workplace, join this webinar to learn more.
Research in the clinical setting: Taking nursing to new heights
60140
The growth of the nursing profession depends on developing scientific principles upon which to base practice. This two-contact hour CE activity focuses on the development and conduct of nursing research in the clinical setting for direct bedside application.
Working with an interprofessional team
CE90-60
Multidisciplinary, interprofessional and transdisciplinary team designations, often used interchangeably, refer to different groups in healthcare that operate with varying degrees of interaction among team members regarding patient care responsibilities. This program increases healthcare professionals’ knowledge about the skills required to work effectively in interprofessional teams.
Succession planning in nursing: Who are tomorrow’s leaders?
CE622
To ensure a pool of qualified internal candidates, succession planning is a necessary business strategy. Succession planning encompasses the focused, formal assessment and development of individuals for future positions in leadership. With baby boomers (those born between 1946 and 1964) moving into retirement, healthcare facilities need to hire and retain qualified leadership personnel in a competitive market.
Improving critical thinking and clinical reasoning
CE168-60
Having sound critical thinking and clinical reasoning skills makes the difference between keeping patients safe and putting them in harm’s way. This educational activity addresses the knowledge, skills and attitudes needed for critical thinking and clinical reasoning. It reviews results from key studies and gives strategies for developing the thinking skills needed to function as a 21st century healthcare professional.
Developing your leadership potential
60106
Leadership skills have not necessarily been a part of basic nurse education and are needed by all nurses to be partners in this change as well as to be effective clinicians in the healthcare environment. This comprehensive 6.80 contact hour course provides nurses with practical strategies that can help them establish personal plans for developing their leadership potential.
Millennials, keeping it real, and making an impact
WEB 354
What does the nursing workforce look like today? The demographics are changing as baby boomers begin to retire and the number of millennials have doubled in the workforce. With a drive to make a difference, be understood, and thrive, millennials generally have certain aspirations for professional development and influencing their environment.
Shared governance: What it can mean for nurses
CE635
Shared governance is an organizational model that provides a structure for shared decision making among professionals about practice and clinical outcomes. Shared governance legitimizes nurses’ decision-making control over their practice while extending their influence to some administrative areas previously controlled by managers.

Evidence-based practice in nursing
WEB326
