Cinahl Information Systems Gets Nursing Education Accreditation

Sep 15, 2009

The American Nurse Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation has been certified as a provider of continuing nursing education. This means that nurses, including those seeking specialty certification, who use online resources from EBSCO Publishing can earn contact hours for relicensure from these resources.

The continuing education modules from Cinahl Information Systems are found in the suite of CINAHL databases available on EBSCOhost, such as CINAHL Plus with Full Text and in Nursing Reference Center (NRC).

CINAHL and NRC continuing education modules are interactive, allowing nurses to satisfy continuing education requirements online. They contain the latest topics on patient care and drug administration. Each continuing education module consists of course material, an interactive review and a competency test with a certificate of successful completion. NRC currently has more than 300 continuing education modules, a number that is expected to double in the next year, and CINAHL has 100 more.
