Certified Nurse Educator (CNE) Programs by GI Supply

Most states require nurses to complete some form of continuing education every two to three years as a condition of licensure. Even if your state board does not require any education for continuing competence for renewal, you may still be required by your employer or nursing association for job-specific certifications (i.e., nursing specialties, magnet hospitals, etc.). GI Supply offers accredited CNE classes which can take place at your facility or at an off-site location and provides nurses a free contact hour upon completion.
