Continuing Education, Nursing
Nursing continuing education (CE) opportunities at Widener University's School of Nursing are offered to assist alumni and non-alumni registered nurses in meeting certification and licensure requirements. Our CE programs are frequently coordinated with alumni events offered to provide our alumni with an opportunity to reconnect with colleagues, network, and gain additional knowledge while enjoying a relaxed and educationally stimulating environment. Alumni are encouraged to share their expertise and are often invited program speakers.
Programs are offered both on and off campus.
Continuing Ed Programs
The CE programs range from one-hour lectures to all-day presentations depending upon the topic. Nursing continuing education contact hours are provided in accordance with
Pennsylvania State Nurses Association and the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation guidelines and criteria. One continuing education contact hour is provided for each 60 minutes of participation. Fees may or may not be required for attendance depending upon the program. Alumni often receive discounted fees to attend when a fee is required for program attendance.
