Clinical Education

Nursing Professional Development serves as a community training center for the American Heart Association. Life support courses offered include BLS, ACLS, PALS, ATLS, FCCS, TNCC and ENPC.

Nursing Internship Programs are designed to assist recent graduates in transitioning to the role of a professional registered nurse in a specialized area.

Continuing Nursing Education and Outreach

Continuing Nursing Education classes provide attendees with opportunities to learn skills that either prepare them for new roles or help them to be more successful within their present roles. Outreach Education is available upon request. Please e-mail Melinda LaPrade Send an e-mail for more information.
