Certified Nurse Educators Workshop to be Held at RSU

A one-day workshop to help nurses prepare for the Certified Nurse Educator exam will be offered at Rogers State University on Friday, Sept. 18.

The workshop will act as a preparatory course and include an intensive review of the CNE exam, an accredited certification offered by the National League for Nursing. The course will also cover certification implications for nurse faculty, CNE eligibility requirements, resources for certification preparation and the CNE renewal process.

Patricia Mahoney, who has been a nurse educator for more than 40 years, will be the presenter. In addition to working as an educator and program consultant, Mahoney served as the initial chairperson for the NLN’s Certification Test Development Committee.

This will be the first time the workshop has been held in northeastern Oklahoma, according to Health Sciences Department Head and Associate Professor Dr. Nancy Diede.

RSU is a recognized leader in meeting the educational needs of the Tulsa metropolitan area’s health care community. Registered nurses with baccalaureate degrees are sought by many professional practice settings, particularly those that involve community health or nursing management.

The workshop fee is $325 per person for NLN school or individual members and $425 for non-NLN members. For more information contact Diede at 918-343-7885.
