Journal of continuing education in nursing
Continuing nursing education (CNE) activities are increasingly becoming a requirement for RNs to maintain licensure or certification and to remain competent in practice in the fast-changing health care environment. Regardless of the health care profession, continuing education should be a quality educational experience to positively influence practice and patient outcomes.
