Children’s Hospital Association program for NICU clinicians now available from HealthcareSource eLearning Library
Woburn, MA – May 13, 2014 – HealthcareSource®, the leading provider of talent management solutions for the healthcare industry, today released a new web-based neonatal critical-care orientation program that provides NICU clinicians with the foundational, core topics pertinent to caring for the critically-ill neonate. The Essentials of Neonatal Critical Care Orientation program was developed by the Children’s Hospital Association, and is available now via the HealthcareSource eLearning LibrarySM.
The Essentials of Neonatal Critical Care Orientation program offers a comprehensive, standardized educational package ideal for new neonatal critical care nurses as well as more experienced staff who seek the opportunity to review foundational orientation content in an online, self-paced learning environment.
The orientation program, which offers 22 CNE hours, is comprised of five key topic areas—patient care, respiratory care, neurology, endocrine, and vascular access. The topic areas are broken into 22 lessons and the solution includes an online Instructor’s Guide to facilitate precepting and blended learning. The blended learning component, or education where both instructor-led training and eLearning are used, allows learners to receive the standardized education program via the online course, with hands on training provided by organization-assigned preceptors.
“We’re proud of our relationship with the Children’s Hospital Association, which allows us to offer the Essentials of Neonatal Critical Care Orientation as part of our eLearning Library and integrate the course on our customers’ learning management systems,” says Michelle Leavitt, Director of Courseware and Product Strategy at HealthcareSource. “Typical orientation programs can take 12 to 26 weeks and learners often feel overwhelmed. They can struggle to translate the new knowledge into actionable items. Blended learning models like this have been proven to be more effective orientation solutions.”
The HealthcareSource eLearning Library, a part of the HealthcareSource Quality Talent SuiteSM, contains more than 4,000 courses in clinical and non-clinical compliance, coding and reimbursement, continuing education, clinical reference, and other areas. In addition, the eLearning Library has partnerships with industry-leading organizations, like the Children’s Hospital Association, to provide users with access to award-winning, world-class, online education.
