  • Using RN Continuing Education as a Weapon Against Rising Costs and Threats to Quality

    Contains 1 Component(s) Recorded On: 03/18/2014

    This session will focus on how the current LTC environment can be improved by an intentional, comprehensive continuing education program for RNs that prepares them to achieve Board Certification.

    This session will focus on how the current LTC environment can be improved by an intentional, comprehensive continuing education program for RNs that prepares them to achieve Board Certification. The modest investments LTC facility administrators have made in this program have had a positive impact on the LTC RN workforce, their effectiveness on the job, and their RN turnover rate in a LTC environment characterized by rising acuity of LTC patients, tighter reimbursements, and more stringent regulations. Administrators are finding that the benefits of this program to their residents and financial bottom line far outweigh its costs.

    Learning Objectives:

    1. Correlate the attainment of RN board certification with standards of clinical excellence
    2. Explore the relationships between comprehensive education, RN retention, and overall quality of care outcomes
    3. Provide data supporting the business case of comprehensive RN education and professional development investment
