As a nurse, you know the importance of staying on top of the latest advancements in medicine and medical procedures. One the best ways to do that is to take part in a school of nursing continuing education program. Below is a brief discussion of two of the most notable programs.
Texas Tech University
The School of Nursing Continuing Education Program at Texas Tech University was the first university based, nationally accredited nursing education program in the state of Texas. One of the main reasons why this program is so popular among nurses looking to expand their horizons is the various educational activities included in the program.
For example, courses are specifically designed and taught onsite with area hospitals and agencies throughout the West Texas area. Also, the Texas Tech University School of Nursing continuing education offers participation in courses taught by both the school of nursing and school of medicine, offering a greater educational base to the nurses taking the course.
Maryland School of Nursing
Another school for nursing continuing education that is quickly becoming a well established one is that of the Maryland School of Nursing. In fact, this school has been established as one of the nation's top graduate schools for the fifth consecutive time when the U.S. News & World Report placed the University of Maryland's School of Nursing program tenth overall, tied with UCLA, and the University of Pittsburgh among others.
In addition, four of the master's specialty programs received the top 10 status. The adult nurse practitioner program ranked fifth, the nursing service administration program ranked seventh, and the adult/medical surgical and community public health programs were ranked at the level of eight for each. In addition, this program for nursing education is accredited, and is one of the best in the nation.
