Research News: Our popular continuing education courses will keep you on the right path!

We work hard to provide top-notch courses authored by leading healthcare experts, covering everything from pediatrics and pain management to anesthesia and geriatric health.

Hess Jr., PhD, RN, FAAN, executive vice president and chief clinical executive of healthcare for OnCourse Learning. “For example, our pain management module is one of our finest endeavors to address the joint efforts of multiple disciplines as they come together interprofessionally to meet the patient’s multifaceted needs. It is ironic that when we first produced interprofessional modules we had to justify this approach. Luckily the healthcare world has caught up with us and fully understands how important this approach now is.”
