Modernizing Continuing Education With Online Courses

The 21st Century Health Care Forum discusses the future of Continuing


SAN FRANCISCO, June 2 /PRNewswire/ -- Accredited online nursing courses are replacing traditional classroom-based courses, offering nurses a more convenient method for receiving credit, while providing flexibility in their credentialing options.

Ann Johnson, CEO of Wild Iris Medical Education took part in the 21st Century Health Care Forum, a feature on Sky Radio, part of American Airlines In-flight Radio Broadcast. She discussed new trends in continuing education, including why there has been an increase in the popularity of online courses.

The responsibility for continuing education that nurses are required to complete to maintain their licenses is shifting, and in many cases has shifted completely, from the hospitals to the individual nurses. Without a centralized, convenient location for education, such as a hospital or associated university, individuals are turning more and more to the Internet to fulfill their continuing education needs.

The changing nature of nursing is also drawing many nurses online. For example, telephone nursing practitioners, or others who need to be licensed in several different states, can keep up all of their state-specific nursing requirements in one place.

Those interested can learn more about the modernization of continuing education on Sky Radio or listen online at
