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

  • 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."
