(May, 2020) - NCSBN’s International Center for Regulatory Scholarship (ICRS) is offering an invaluable series of free online COVID-19 courses for health care professionals. Three of the four courses offer continuing education credit upon completion. Offered in a self-paced and concise format, the courses were designed to provide new, established and returning nurses with training and resources during the COVID-19 pandemic.
The courses include: “COVID-19: Epidemiology, Modes of Transmission and Protecting Yourself with PPE,” “COVID-19: Nursing Care,” “COVID-19: Basic Law and Ethics for Nurses during COVID-19” and “COVID-19: Credible Information, Hoaxes and the Media.”
Maryann Alexander, PhD, RN, FAAN, chief officer, NCSBN Nursing Regulation, comments, “In addition to being essential resources for nurses who may be called upon to treat patients with COVID-19, these courses contain valuable information for anyone wishing to increase their knowledge of the COVID-19 pandemic.”
