With a month or less of summer left, we know many instructors fill summer with assessing new resources, planning for the coming year and attending conferences. We'd like to make another suggestion if you find yourself with a little extra time during long summer evenings: get your CE credits out of the way!
Here are some resources for finding free, online, continuing education credits:
Nurse.com - Free CE courses worth 1 hour each. Classes focus on everything from specific ailments to best practices in the workplace. We like the selection of leadership and professional courses offered through this website.
Nurse CEU - Free, online classes worth .5-2 hours. Several credits are framed as activities surrounding a specific case scenario, which we think is a more engaging platform than a simple slideshow or powerpoint with facts.
The Online Learning Center - This resource offers a handful of free courses largely related to home health care and geriatric care. If you don't find any free courses you like in any of these resources, you can always browse the paid courses on this website as well.
If you know of any additional websites for free CE credits, include them in the comments so we can continue sharing with our readers!
