Nursing Informatics CE -- any one-stop shops?

  1. I'm looking at sitting for my RN-BC Nursing Informatics in December. So, to get ready for eligibility, I need to get 30 CE in NI.

    I've searched all over, and I can't find a one-stop shop for all 30 hours. I can pay $99 here and get a few hours, $69 there and get a few hours, $299 for a "review course" attached to another 12 hours. But, I can't find anywhere where I can 1) get all 30 hours and 2) not get bent over and pay out the nose for CE.

    Anyone have a good resource for this? I don't mind paying for CE, but I refuse to get nickle-and-dimed and have to bounce around to a half dozen sites to do so.

    Have you joined the American Nursing Informatics Assocaition? They have free CE's every month along with a library where you can get all your CE's from past ANIA conferences.

    I did check ANIA out. But, it looks like all of their conference CE is $20 a pop (for members) for 0.5-1.5 hours, unless I'm reading it wrong. Not super excited about the prospect of paying ~$600 for CE on top of $79/year for membership.

    The ania organization provides their conference web sessions as a package. Each conference is about 15 to 30 credits. They cost about $300 for the entire conference of sessions. There are multiple conferences available. All of them are web casts. American Nursing Informatics Association

    Ah, looks like I totally overlooked the whole-conference packages and just saw the individual presentations at $20-30/each. Oops!

    I can handle $199 + the $79 membership fee quite a bit more than I can handle $600. Thanks to both of ya!
