Study with CLPNA: Learning to Learn Self-Study Course

With constant changes and advancements in technology and medical knowledge, a nurse’s competencies and skills can quickly become outdated. Nursing practice can become less effective – putting safe and ethical client care at risk. Nurses must continuously learn to maintain and enhance their professional nursing competence.

The Learning to Learn Self-Study Course is designed to assist and motivate Licensed Practical Nurses (LPNs) to embrace ongoing continuing education and professional development.
