Nurses are trained to work with physicians and patients by developing nursing care plans to support patients in a healthcare setting. Nurses are an essential part of clinics, hospitals, hospices, assisted-living facilities, nursing homes and other environments where health care is provided. Proper training for nurses includes a college education from nursing programs accredited by the National League for Nursing Accrediting Commission (NLNAC). In addition, nurses must take part in continuing nursing training courses to maintain their certification after they have passed the initial exam to become certified in their state.

What to Look for in Online Nursing Training Courses
Many schools and programs offer continuing education for nurses, but when looking for programs to update your knowledge, secure recertification or pursue new career opportunities, you'll want to look for:
- Convenience: Nurses often work erratic shifts, which can make traditional learning difficult. Choosing a convenient online learning program that allows you to study when you can is important. Lorman Education Services offers a range of online courses in a variety of formats, including audio books, articles, white papers, case studies and more. You can access materials at any time day, so you can study when you are available.
- Personalization: Since nurses have limited hours of time to devote to studying, it's important to spend all study time tackling the subjects you really need to master. Lorman Education Services lets you select specific subject matters to study, ensuring you don't waste precious time reviewing material you already know.
- Quality: You can only gain knowledge if you’re learning from someone who knows more than you do. Lorman Education Services offers materials developed by some of the brightest minds in nursing and healthcare, including professionals who have decades of experience, ensuring you get quality instruction.
- Relevance and Accuracy: The world of nursing is always changing. New legislation, healthcare technologies and best practices are being unveiled all the time. Keeping up can be a challenge, especially with a busy full-time job. Lorman Education Services is always updating our resources, ensuring you have access to the latest and the most relevant information possible.
