Education, Tip of the Week provides free online continuing education (CE) for certain courses

One class that comes to mind: Wellness Coaching Skills to Enhance Your Client Follow-Up. This is perfect for healthcare professionals with goals of building their skills on empowering their clients, fostering positive energy, and implementing client follow up sessions.

This class was created by the Creative Educational Concepts (CECI) which received their accreditation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACGME), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.

CECI: 1.0 contact hour

Length: 1 hour
