As a former nurse educator, I feel horrible when people have to suffer through the monthly inservices. We wouldn't teach our residents in a long boring drawn out manner, why would we teach our peers in this way. Learning can be fun!
Thanks for answers everyone! I work per diem at an LTC and they are chasing me for inservices, since I work there about once every 1-2 months I didn't realize they were mandatory. I've got some catching up to do!
Yes we have in-services all of the time. All employees of the facility whether PRN, part-time or full-time are required to attend if the in-service is for them ( i.e. CNA, licensed staff, etc.) and if the in-service has been made mandatory. The facility where I work has both mandatory and voluntary in-services.
