I don't know why they call it a practice...like we're important professionals or something.
umm... Because we are.
To OP - I am still fresh out of school, so haven't worried a lot about this yet for my nursing licence. But, I've had several years of maintaining my dental assisting credentials. There are a couple yearly dental conferences here in the metro area that I attended to keep up with the "Latest and Greatest". BTW - some of the classes/lectures had RN CEUs available also, so I'll be able to kill the proverbial two birds with one stone. :spin:
The hospital I am currently employed at appears to have a good program aimed at keeping nursing staff up to date. (Although I'm still trying to figure out how to make that work with a evening /nights rotation...) I also get mailings from school / other sources for available classes, lectures, online classes, etc. I'm also currently looking at different nursing magazines. (Suggestions welcome...) And, I intend to go back to school to finish BSN in the not to distant future. (Personal goal to finish "4 year" degree before kids do - oldest is HS senior.)
So, I guess in answer: yes, to all of your questions above.
