This 60-minute webinar will feature Jim Stobinski, CEO of the Competency and Credentialing Institute (CCI). The use of CE (Continuing Education) in the nursing profession is ubiquitous. Many nurses are required to earn CE to facilitate renewal of their license and various nursing credentials utilize CE as part of the recertification mechanism. The use in CE in American professions has a long history and it is a method with which many healthcare workers are very familiar. However, the evidence linking CE and enhancements in the competency of the learner are at best tenuous. The purpose of this presentation is to acquaint the learner with how the use of CE has been commercialized in nursing. CE has become a commodity of sorts in which the nurse engages in a transactional basis detached from the original intent of the learning activity. A proposed new model of continuous professional development will be provided which melds the business needs of surgery and the enhancement of nursing competency.

About the Presenter: James Stobinski, PhD, RN, CNOR, CSSM (E), is the CEO of the Competency and Credentialing Institute which administers certification programs for nurses in the surgical setting. He holds a diploma of nursing from the Toledo Hospital School of Nursing and a BSN and MSN from East Carolina University. He earned his PhD in International Health Research from Touro University International in 2011 for a study of competency and skill acquisition in perioperative nurses. Dr Stobinski serves as adjunct faculty at Nova Southeastern University and Wilkes University and maintains a research agenda centered on nursing workforce issues. He has spoken extensively at the national level on nursing professional development issues.
