Nursing Assistant Monthly Newsletter Online Instant Access 1st Edition

Cengage Learning

  • Published

Overview

This is a monthly newsletter that covers a wide variety of topics that CNAs will face throughout their career. It is available in both print and digital format. The newsletter is designed to meet the needs of health care facilities that provide their nursing assistant staff with continuing education opportunities. Federal law mandates a minimum of 75 hours for a training program plus 12 hours of documented in-service continuing education training per year. This newsletter works to fulfill that need.

  • In this online model, an automatically graded quiz will be presented side-by-side with the newsletter content. A facilitator can manage a "course" or entire set of CNA employees to track their scoring and progress holistically. A certificate of completion will be available for each month to download and print when a passing quiz score is achieved.
  • Each monthly newsletter covers a specific theme and includes an interview with a professional, as well as an article of interest. Once the staff member has completed reading the newsletter, they are required to take a brief five or six question quiz to demonstrate that they have read and understood the materials in that month's installment. For print customers, the quiz is found in the facilitator's guide, which contains an introduction, continuing education and in-service training goals, and additional resources. PPT's are provided on our website for those facilities interested in providing a more traditional classroom setting for presenting the material.
