NExT (Nursing Experts: Translating the Evidence) Continuing-Education Modules Now Available

(via Cynthia Reynolds, HSLI President)

Several HSLI members have been collaborating on the Nursing Experts: Translating the Evidence (NExT) project to provide continuing education modules for nurses. These modules are now available, are free, and provide seven units each of continuing-education credit for nurses.

We are asking that you share news of this opportunity with the nurses that you know. Here are a few more details.

The Nursing Experts: Translating the Evidence project is a collaborative effort between nurses and librarians at several organizations. The goal of this project is to educate acute, ambulatory, school and population health nurses on where to find free and reliable evidentiary resources and how to effectively apply this knowledge to inform and impact practice. Participants complete free online evidence-based education modules and earn 7 free continuing education units for each course.

For full details and to access the modules, please go here for population health and school nurses and here for acute and ambulatory care nurses. This project has been funded in whole or in part with Federal funds from the National Library of Medicine, National Institutes of Health, Department of Health and Human Services, under Grant Number 1UG4LMO12312346 with the University of Iowa.
