"GE is the only medical device manufacturer that offers such a diverse, flexible and open educational program for nurses," said Jenne Meyer, marketing leader for GE Healthcare's Education Services. "We continue to hear from nurses about the need for better education on all levels to help them perform better at their jobs, and this flexible, convenient solution is one way GE Healthcare can assist."

GE's nursing library of online education is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week for nurses to further their education and stay up to date on new therapies, keep their licenses current and ultimately improve the quality of patient care. The library is continuously updated with new courses about topics of interest for nurses. Among the topics the current library contains include:

  • Arrhythmia Recognition
  • Assessing Ventilation and Blood Flow with Capnography
  • Critical Thinking and the Use of Evidence-Based Practice
  • Identification and Management of the Patient with Sepsis
  • Investigating Blood and Tissue Donation
  • Competition & Strategy in Healthcare
  • Coping with Life Changes and Transitions in Our Professional Lives
  • Lean Six Sigma in Healthcare
  • Performance Quality & Service
  • Stress Management Proven Techniques for Leaders

"I take 50-100 courses a year and that allows me to give the best care in a more timely fashion to my patients," said Kirsten Springer, a registered nurse from Mission Viejo, CA. "I have many patients that are better off because of the time I spend educating myself and making sure that I'm providing the best possible care."
