It comes as no surprise... your nurses have busy lives. Their professional and personal lives are busy enough without the added requirement of earning Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
Georgia requires nurses to earn 20 to 30 hours of CEUs every two years. That means your team must find accredited classes, fit them into their schedules, and sometimes pay out of pocket to complete the coursework. If you were them, wouldn’t you prefer these hassles to be covered by your employer?
Offering benefits such as continuing education options is not only a great way to remain an attractive employer, but you’re also providing your team direct access to advance their skills, discover new interests, and build their careers. It’s an employee benefit that comes full circle to help your facility, your team, and most importantly, your patients!
