Lifelong Learning with Evidence Based Research and Practice
As one of the leading centers for nursing education in the nation, the MSU College of Nursing Continuing Nursing Education (CNE) Provider Unit draws on the teaching expertise, education, and practice experience of faculty in bachelor’s, master’s, and doctoral programs.
Content areas include faculty development for nurses in:
- Acute care
- Ambulatory care
- Rural health
- Academic settings
We enhance nursing knowledge on topics such as pain management, case/care coordination, elder care, health promotion, behavioral health, and new models of care delivery.
Specific population foci include youth, adults, and older adults with emphasis on health promotion, disease and injury prevention, and treatment of chronic health conditions.
Programs may consist of one hour “lunch and learn” sessions, multiple hour workshops, or one and two day conferences. Face-to-face and independent study options are available depending on the needs of the audience.
MSU is an Approved Provider Unit for CNE
The Provider Unit serves as a conduit to community and health system partners. CNE offerings seek to:
- Provide CNE professional development offerings aligned with the University and MSU College of Nursing mission and goals, and the needs assessment of learners, in order to apply current evidence in education, research, and practice to the daily work of nurses in Michigan.
- Provide infrastructure support to develop a variety of online and face to face professional education opportunities for nurses that meet the learning needs of professionals.
- Expand the internal and external relationships featuring alumni and collaborative partners to develop and implement CNE professional offerings.
- Support the MSU College of Nursing faculty by sharing expertise in practice and education, and by assisting in the dissemination of research findings.
