Nursing Continuing Education
Please note: Most of our course offerings have switched to an online format due to the current meeting restrictions. The online courses will be conducted through live, "real-time" online platforms called Zoom or GoToTraining. Courses will be held at the same date and times as indicated in the schedule. You will be able to take the courses using any type of device that has internet access: PC, Mac, tablet, even a smartphone.
The courses to be offered online include: Medication Calculations, Pharmacology Review and Update, Nurse Practioner Courses, Spanish For The Healthcare Provider, Introduction To Statistics, Physical Assessment of The Pediatric Client, Transition To School Nursing, RN Refresher Program and Operating Room Training.
However, we plan to hold some classes in-person, including: Basic Life Support (CPR), EKG and Physical Assessment. Courses offered in-person will follow all the necessary health and safety restrictions recommended by the Center for Disease Control and the NYS Department of Health.
