Continuing Ed hours

  1. Well,
    that time of the year has come around and I need my 15 hours. This is my first full year out of nursing so I must get them on my own.

    Are there any great places to look for these hours. I found a place called myfreece.com, but it isn't really free. I am really not concerned by the price, more so I am interested in the quality of the courses. Has anybody used the previously mentioned site and what did you think about it?

    I would also like ideas on what I should take to keep up to date with current nursing trends since I am no longer in this line of work. I am kind of excited to take some courses because it has been so long since I have even read anything dealing with nursing.

    THanks

    Same here. I've used Western Schools for years. Affordable and I think well-writen.

    Thanks for the recommendation. I may try them myself. Also, some of the nursing periodicals have classes listed.

    Someone on this site just clued me in to Medscape.com. Once you register (for free) you can take any of their online programs for free CE's. The first one I did on pain was excellent...and free! I printed off the certificate and that's it...I'm done.

    That is great. I'll have to check that out. Was there any stipulation regarding different states accepting the CEU's? Thanks.
