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changes and advancements in technology and medical knowledge, a nurse’s competencies and skills can quickly become outdated.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.
LEARNING TO LEARN SELF-STUDY COURSE
The free course consists of seven modules including supplementary resources and a final exam. A printable Certificate of Completion from the CLPNA is available upon passing the Final Exam.
The first set of concepts includes the importance of continuous professional learning; the CLPNA’s Continuing Competence Program; assessing learning needs; and developing and recording your learning plan. The second set is about digital learning and associated risks. The third set provides tips on improving memory; studying effectively; organizing learning activities; and time management.
This course is suitable to help LPNs meet the Learning Plan goals of the CLPNA’s Continuing Competence Program. More self-study courses are available from Study with CLPNA.
This course was developed by the College of Licensed Practical Nurses of Alberta (CLPNA) to help meet our Strategic Plan goals.
