Continuing Education

Faculty members believe that lifelong learning enhances competence in professional practice and self-growth, allowing nurses to function more effectively in their professional roles and to contribute to society. Interdisciplinary exploration of new ideas, trends and developments, coupled with exposure to new dimensions are critical to the development and maintenance of a dynamic nursing profession. Although lifelong learning is ultimately the responsibility of the individual, we are particularly committed to providing continuing education for advanced practice nurses, researchers, managers and scholars.
