SEIU Nurses! CEU Courses and More are Available Now Through Our Education Library!

 

The Education Library is available to all SEIU nurses (RNs & LVNs) in California. It is more than just an opportunity to get free CEUs for your license renewal. The information provided is vital for safe nursing practice, protections that you have at work that include health & safety and workers’ rights. These are courses that will you not find anywhere else

The new explainer film has been posted for our Education Library. This video explains how the new mobile app (Apple download & Google Play download) works by allowing nurses to gain access not only to CEU courses but also discussion forums and a social wall so that SEIU union nurses can connect to each other from across the state. Take a look at the explainer film and discover for yourself just how convenient this new app is. Regular updates will be sent out to nurses who subscribe here.

Just click on the registration link, fill it out and then you’ll receive an email with a personal invite to join us. Every SEIU nurse member who registers will create their own account (with username and password) 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 night shift nurses can join us!)

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!
