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.
