Nurse.com - Intensive CE Series

    Nurse.com CE.com Logo




The Intensive CE Series combines live webinars with independent web-based study, creating a “virtual classroom” environment.  Tackling complex initiatives, we break them into key topics, and bring nationally known experts right into the attendee’s home, office or facility. Learners go through a multiple week engagement with the same small group of peers, so they can share practices and questions together in an interactive “two-way” webinar experience from wherever they live or work. Between webinars, learners complete independent online study modules to reinforce and apply their new learning and prepare for the next session.
