The University of Kansas School of Nursing has a proud history of being accredited as a provider of continuing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center since 1981, and is currently accredited with distinction. The School of Nursing sponsors a number of continuing education programs for KUMC faculty, staff, and students as well as national programs for nurses, physicians, and other health care providers. The School of Nursing also has a long history of collaborating with KU Medical Center Continuing Eduation on interprofessional programs.
Nationally Offered Continuing Education Programs
The School of Nursing's Deep Discovery programs are nationally offered. They bring to campus national and international speaker-scholars and give them an in-depth opportunity to present their major work. These programs and workshops will typically be 1 - 2 days in length and will focus on areas of critical importance to healthcare delivery and systems improvement. A yearly favorite of participants has been our Lessons from Legends: Power, Policy & Practice offering.
On March 28-29, 2013, one of our own renowned alumni, Dr. Ada Sue Hinshaw, joined us for the popular Lessons From Legends: Power, Policy & Practice program, during which she shared her insight and experiences. Known for her contributions to nursing research, national health policy and education leadership, Hinshaw spoke to a packed auditorium in her "Lessons from Legends" presentation.
We are pleased to recognize continued financial support for our Deep Discovery programs from the Eisenbise Executive Development Series Fund. Such support is welcomed and valued as this support helps to reduce the cost per program for all participants.

Internal Continuing Education Programs
The School of Nursing is also proud to sponsor primarily internal programs targeted toward the needs of our KUMC faculty, students and staff. Registration for these regularly scheduled programs (RSS) is free at the program, with continuing education credits available through an automated sytem (EEDs). Announcements for these programs are sent by e-mail to potential or targeted participants and, as appropriate, will also be listed on the KUMC Events Calendar.
