Brigham and Women’s Hospital Department of Nursing is committed to the continuing education and development of staff. The Center for Nursing Excellence ensures that principles of adult education, evidence based practice, research, and professional development are integrated into continuing education programs and that these programs meet current standards and requirements.
At BWH there are a variety of ways to develop continuing education programs that meet the criteria for continuing education credits. If you are planning an educational program and would like to know if it qualifies as continuing education, and/or would like assistance in applying for continuing education credits please email firstname.lastname@example.org. Please note we strongly encourage you to set up a planning meeting at least 4-6 weeks prior to your program to ensure all required CE documentation is completed so that your event can offer nursing contact hours.
