- Continuing Nursing Education – Worth Our Time and Energy - Continuing Nursing Education - Worth Our Time and Energy March 15, 2018 By Karen Wilkinson, RN, NHA, CLNC – CareerSmart Learning Contributor Nurses are constantly learning. It is part of the daily routine. New equipment arrives, an unfamiliar diagnosis is written, regulations and policies change, or an ethical or cultural dilemma interrupts the day. Keeping up with current nursing practice can be challenging, but it is the nurse’s responsibility to do so. One of the many ways nurses learn is through continuing nursing education. As licensed nurses, continuing education requirements are part of licensure renewal for nearly everyone. But, the benefits go beyond just the licensure requirements. Continuing nursing education is integral to a nurse’s professional development. It builds on the basic education that was required for licensure, and also on past and present professional work experience. As knowledge and competence in nursing practice increase with continuing nursing education, so ...Read More
- The Nurse Licensure Compact - The Nurse Licensure Compact June 11, 2018 By Karen Wilkinson, RN, NHA, CLNC – CareerSmart Learning Contributor The Nurse Licensure Compact (NLC) was originally implemented 18 years ago as an interstate agreement that allowed a nurse to be licensed in one state but also have the privilege of practicing in other “compact” states. The NLC recognized that a more adaptable system of nursing licensure was needed. At that time, changing technologies were emerging in healthcare that individual state licensing boards were not positioned to efficiently address. The mobility and practice of nurses across state boundaries created challenges for nurses, as well as for state boards of nursing. The necessity of multiple individual state licenses, and adherence to various state laws, regulations, and continuing education requirements complicated the practice of nurses who lived in one state but worked in another, or were electronically teaching or working in a different state. ...Read More
- Continuing Nursing Education - Continuing Nursing Education - The Requirements May 15, 2018 By Karen Wilkinson, RN, NHA, CLNC – CareerSmart Learning Contributor The requirements for continuing nursing education (CNE) vary widely from state to state, and may even vary by licensure type within the same state. All states and territories have enacted a nurse practice act, or laws to regulate nursing in that state or territory, along with a board of nursing to administratively clarify those laws. Requirements for basic nursing education, licensure and CNE are determined by each board of nursing based on state-specific laws and regulations. Most, but not all, U.S. nurses are required to complete a specified number of hours of continuing education during each licensure cycle. And, some states require that nurses provide proof of nursing competency based on employment hours, national certification, or completion of a refresher course. There are also states that require a certain number of ...Read More
