Continuing education for nurses: join your peers for evidence-based learning
Head back to class to stay up-to-date on skin and wound care.
There are lots of compelling reasons to further your skin and wound care education: to fulfill continuing education unit requirements, to advance your career or simply to review an important topic.
Here’s another motivation: more than 200 free continuing education courses online at Medline University—created for clinicians by clinicians.
Address gaps in skin health practice
Evidence-based best practices for skin and wound care often change with new research and innovations in areas such as pressure injuries, venous stasis and moisture-associated skin damage.
“Learning should never cease for nurses, as healthcare is constantly evolving and improving through advancements in science and technology. It is through education that we provide evidence-based care and continue to improve patient outcomes,” says Kristin White, RN, BSN, CWON, Medline Clinical Education Specialist, Skin Health-Acute Care.
That’s why Medline’s dedicated team of clinicians has developed targeted skin health courses, webinars and resources.
“A good continuing education class updates you and enhances your knowledge of a topic you have learned previously,” notes Patricia Turner, BSN, RN, CWOCN, CWS, Medline Director of Clinical Resources, Skin Health-Acute Care.
“Continuing education is important for nurses to stay current in the latest advances in their fields, but also gives the opportunity to learn from other nursing areas,” White adds.
Medline University courses help you stay on top of important guidelines and standards of practice so you can provide the best care for your patients. Medline Clinical Education Specialist Katie James, BA, RN, CWCN, sums it up: “Taking continuing ed courses keeps me focused and on my game.”
