Educational Dimensions is a veteran-owned, woman-owned small business. We create valuable learning experiences for the professional learner, focusing on a variety of health care providers.
Educational Dimensions is an education consultation company specializing in continuing education for registered nurses. As experts in all aspects of CNE program development, we collaborate with subject matter experts to create and deliver quality education programs for the participant. As certified continuing education providers, we manage all aspects of program accreditation and participant certification. Educational Dimensions is maintained on core values of quality, relationships and service. We are proud of our increased client referrals based on these values and the partnerships we have formed with healthcare companies, healthcare providers and nursing groups. Over the years, Educational Dimensions has expanded to meet client needs and offer additional services. Courses for health industry sales representatives, online learning opportunities, complete instructional design and program enhancement are among our many services.
The changing face of the health care profession and the uncertainty of health care reform resulting from reorganization, downsizing and cost-containment, coupled with the explosion of new technologies and procedures in the clinical arena, create continuous learning needs. Educational Dimensions believes that continuing education is a vehicle through which professionals may develop, maintain and enhance the knowledge and competence required in their practice. Continuing education activities ultimately contribute to promoting and improving the health of the public.
Our CNE Activities
The online independent study CNE activities offered by Educational Dimensions are faculty-directed, learner-paced activities offered in a variety of modalities. Participants can access modules through the links under the CNE Activities tab. They will view or read the content and if contact hours are desired, participants will register, complete the evaluation and achieve a score of 80% or higher on the post-test. They will be awarded the correct number of contact hours and then print out their certificate of completion.
