The College Network Is Now Offering ANCC Accredited Continuing Nursing Education

The College Network Has Officially Begun Offering Three Continuing Education Courses for Nurses That Provide Valuable Contact Hours Upon Successful Completion

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwire - Aug 31, 2011) - The College Network™ is accredited by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to offer continuing education courses for nurses. Available today at http://collegenetwork.com/nursingCNE, these courses include Ethics in Nursing, Medication Safety and Patient Rights. Upon completion of each course, nurses will receive 2.5 continuing education contact hours.

Developing continuing nursing education courses was a natural progression for The College Network, which has provided distance learning and education support for nurses for nearly 20 years. The courses developed will allow nurses to increase their knowledge in specific areas, understand issues emerging within the rapidly changing healthcare industry, and retain licensure in the 33 states that require specific numbers of contact hours each year.

"The topics of the first continuing education courses launched by The College Network were chosen because they address some of the key issues facing nurses today," said Gary Eyler, Chief Executive Officer at The College Network. "They are designed to be convenient and flexible so nurses can participate but also continue to maintain their current work/life balance, which reinforces our commitment to providing quality education to all nurses."

The College Network plans to continue developing continuing education courses for nurses at all levels of their careers. Future topics may include courses on preventing infections and effective confrontation skills.
