Continuing Education

Continuing Education at the Frances Payne Bolton School of Nursing provides quality learning experiences for professional nurses to enhance their knowledge and advance the discipline of nursing.

Our goals include:

  • Support dissemination of evidence ­based nursing practice knowledge
  • Encourage interdisciplinary learning and collaborative experiences
  • Provide information on evolving trends in nursing and health care
  • Promote the development of innovative approaches in nursing education

Our programs are planned by members of our faculty as well as nurses and other health care professionals in the community. Programming may include conferences, symposia, workshops and certificate programs and are developed for alumni and nurses in and around northern Ohio. Some offerings serve wider audiences.
