continuing education credits

I recently just finished up obtaining my required continuing education credits, and I did them all for free! I have to admit, I look forward to the day when I can earn CE credits at a fancy nursing conference, but I just don’t have the time or money to do that at this point.

Here is what I found for free. Share links of your favorite free CE courses in the comment section.

  • Centers for Disease Control and Prevention
    • Once you create an account, you can search the available courses. I took courses on infection control, working night shift, and obstetric hemorrhage.
  • 3M Health Care Academy
    • A well organized hub for so many different continuing education topics (professional development, infection prevention, edema management, IV site care, skin care, and wound care)
  • Medscape Nursing
    • Requires free registration in order to obtain continuing education credits.
    • This website is a database of continuing education courses from multiple course providers.
  • Don’t forget to print continuing education certificates for the classes you take at work. Most of these count, too!
