What is NursingEdge?:
NursingEdge is a Nursing Education website that is different than anything you have ever experienced before! It features streaming videos with very high production values which you can watch to earn CEU’s or CE’s. The videos themselves are fun and interesting, yet packed with information with great relevance to your practice. There are 2 & 3D animations, dramatic bedside simulations, music videos, research reviews, patient interviews, nurse interviews, physician interviews, surgical videos, downloadable patient education handouts, downloadable patient education videos, nurse/patient relationship analyses, lesson and course quizzes. You can pause the course at any time and take a bathroom break! You can log out, shut down your computer, and come back the next day or week and pick up where you left off. You don’t have to sit for hours like you do at an all day conference, even though our courses may be just as long.
What NursingEdge is not:
What you won’t see on NursingEdge is a video of a boring speaker delivering a PowerPoint lecture with a single cheap stationery video camera pointed at the speaker and the screen, with poor quality audio that sounds like it was recorded from the built in on-camera mic. You deserve better than that!
How do the courses work?
Go to the NursingEdge Course page to check out our courses. There you can see course descriptions, objectives, the lessons in each course, and sample preview clips showing what the course is like. Then you select your course or courses for placement in a standard internet shopping cart. The courses themselves are inexpensively priced, and generally cost $15 to $20 dollars per CE. A one credit CE course might cost $15.00 and take an hour to complete. A two credit CE course would cost $30.00 and take 2 hours to complete, and so on. After payment, you are taken to a Thank You & Information page. You then log out, and check your email for your new login credentials: a username, a password, and website address where you can login and access your courses.
As you work your way through the courses, you will find that you have to take the lessons in order. You can’t jump ahead without finishing the lesson you are on and marking it as complete. For many of the lessons, you have to pass a very short quiz at the end of the lesson. This will help you to note important concepts that might show up on the final exam. Upon passing the final exam, you can download and/or print a PDF Certificate conferring your CE’s or CEU’s that you have earned by taking and passing the course. Most courses have a Pretest, a 1 or 2 question quiz for each lesson, and a Post Test or Final Exam with 5 to 10 multiple choice or True/False questions.
Have you ever gone to a conference, and wished you could review a certain part of it 2 or 3 months later? You can with NursingEdge. You can access your course for up to 6 months after you buy it!
