The Effectiveness of Continued Education Units on the Confidence and Competency of Nurses


After completing the required degree education, it is easy for nursing skills to deteriorate if they are not regularly performed in practice. As required by the Texas Board of Nursing, nurses must complete 20 hours of Continued Education Units(CEUs) in order to renew their state license every 2 years. 6 The goal of these courses is to facilitate lifelong learning, improve nursing performance, and ensure that nurses are keeping up to date with standards of practices. It is largely up to the nurse themself to seek out the ever changing developments that occur in the healthcare world. Participation in skills based CEU Courses has been a beneficial way to promote nursing confidence by keeping nurses current with skills and providing insight into new practices
