An Educational Opportunity for SEIU Nurse Members that are More than CEUs.

 

The Nurse Alliance of SEIU California is proud 

to announce the grand opening of our 

On-demand Education Library!

 

The library for our FREE on-line courses opened on January 3, 2022 and provides education only provided by our union.  These classes offer vital information for your nursing practice, health & safety and patient advocacy so they are so much more than just free CEUs!

As an SEIU CA nurse member, you’ll be able to create an account to take any of our offered courses designed exclusively for SEIU CA nurse members.

Just click on the registration link provided here, fill it out and then you’ll receive a personal invite via email to join us that includes a link to the library, a unique username and password.  Every SEIU California nurse member who registers will create their own account and be able to take any of our offered courses.  Because the courses are pre-recorded and available any time, nurses can take our courses at their convenience. (That means even NOC shift nurses can join us!) 

The courses available in the library are being offered in either 1-CEU, 2-CEU or 3-CEU options.  Each course is broken up into about 30-minute chapters so that you can take each chapter and complete each course around your busy schedule.  On this site you’ll be able to see which courses we are currently offering, keep track of the chapters and courses that you’ve completed, and get in touch with either the instructors or fellow participants.  Because we’ll be adding new course options every month, it will be important for you to visit our library regularly.

These free CEU courses are presented by the Nurse Alliance of SEIU California and open to all SEIU licensed nurse members. Provider approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing – CA Provider Number 3413.

California Nurse Practitioner Full Practice Authority!

SEIU nurses leading the way, again!

SEIU Nurse Practitioners teaming up with their Registered Nurse colleagues helped pass the landmark legislation, AB 890 (Woods) that allows Nurse Practitioners to work without standardized procedures or physician supervision in defined healthcare settings after completing a transition to practice.

Beginning January 1, 2023, authorizes a certified NP to practice independently outside of a defined healthcare setting after completing 3 years in those settings with independent practice.

It took a few tries, but nurses make the best, most relentless advocates!  This time for themselves in order to better serve our under-served communities that often lack primary care providers.  This will open up access to care in low income communities that are too often also communities of color.

SEIU is dedicated to looking at every issue, solving every problem through a racial justice lens.  Now, more than ever that has to be our top priority.

The Nurse Alliance of SEIU California, is honored to have been a part of the passage of AB 890 and now to be working with our Nurse Practitioners, the Board of Registered Nursing and allies in developing the necessary regulatory changes that will allow our California Nurse Practitioners to finally be able to work with full practice authority!

Coming Soon! On-demand classes for SEIU nurses

Have you ever wanted to take a class offered by your union at your convenience?

Do you want to know what your union is doing for you?

The Nurse Alliance of SEIU California has offered in-person classes to nurses for decades.  They are often limited by space and a nurse’s work schedule.  Since one of our top priorities, as your professional organization, is to provide continuing education units (CEUs), we are developing an on-line and on-demand class library that will be available 24/7 to all SEIU nurses in 2022.

If you are interested in learning more then please email me.

Kathy Hughes, RN hughesk@seiunaca.org

Thanks and “see” you soon at our 2022 virtual classes!
