Continuing Education

For those of us who graduated from nursing school in 2011, the time has come to renew our nursing licenses.  If you are like me and are lucky enough to have a birthday later in the year than your license date, you may have already had to renew your license last fall.

In my state, we do not have to do continuing education hours during our first licensing period, but do have to complete 20 hours every two years afterward.  Free courses are available with an hour here and there, but rarely do they pertain to a topic that I am interested in, or that would benefit my job.

Someone recommended trying Nurse.com, because they offer unlimited continuing education hours for a flat rate, and have courses offered in many subjects.  Does anyone out there have experience with that site, or do you have a better one to recommend?  Please leave me a comment; I'd love to hear from you!

Update:  Texas Health Steps has lots of free CE courses that you can take.  Also, many professional organizations offer free courses.  I belong to the National Association of School Nurses, and they offer many free or discounted CE courses with your membership.  I'll update this post as I find more.  Feel free to leave additional suggestions in the comments.
