Fulfilling CEU Requirement

Posted

Specializes in ICU, CM, Geriatrics, Management. Has 10 years experience.

Looking to satisfy the 30 hours needed over the course of three or four concentrated sessions.

Anyone aware of such programs? Maybe full-day programs?

Thanks.

I get my courses in the mail or online. Have attended in person courses before but found them to be too bothersome for the small amount of credits obtained. Mostly about selling the presenter's materials or books.

Thanks, C.

Any suggestions for me on this? I've let this go till now, as I'm the only RN at my facility, and in charge of running a department of 24 med techs, CNAs and two LPNs.

Appreciate your recommendations.

That provider's courses are even a little more economical than the one I came across yesterday (Gannett Education). Also, they appear to have more two-hour modules, which should provide more substance and reduce the total number of courses needed.

Thanks.

After signing up with CEU Professor, they reduced the number of courses I would be able to be take for the $27.95 fee.

Today when I tried to take a course, their website would not log me in.

Tried to send them an email from their site, but their email server was not in operation.

Attempted to reach them by phone, but no one responded.

All this after just one day's experience with this company.

Will likely end up canceling my subscription, but will give them a chance to explain all the above. Will also insist that they provide a contact telephone number in the even of future issues.

Wanted others here to be forewarned.

The owner of the company personally contacted me today and explained the website took a hit yesterday, and apologized for my inconvenience.

He reassured that all the current courses would be made available. Thereafter, I returned to the site and, in fact, was able to access the materials previously blocked (when the site was having issues).

Mr. Bracken has supplied me with his personal cell phone in the event additional problems arise.

As a result of the above, I've decided to continue with this provider.
