Continuing Education


Our experienced nurse educators facilitate a variety of educational opportunities, including certification review classes. Nurses are reimbursed for the cost of certification fees, up to $500. In all, more than 100 continuing education programs are offered at Edward each year.

Physicians and other clinicians also teach and help Edward nurses stay current. Nurses at Edward receive tuition assistance of up to $4,000 annually for full-time employees and up to $2,000 for eligible part-time employees. Many informal inservices occur on the nursing units. Additional programs for nurses include:

  • On-unit educators and preceptors 

  • Participation in research
    Edward nurses in any position have the opportunity to learn by working on a number of research projects related to nursing practice.

  • Annual nursing scholarships for employees, thanks to support from the Edward Foundation. 

  • Continuing education through lunch and learn programs and Nursing Grand Rounds.

  • Collaboration with four area schools to offer an annual Evidence-based Practice Conference. 

  • The opportunity to teach a new generation of nurses. Our nurses serve as preceptors and role models for the 700 nursing students who rotate through Edward annually. Our nurses also serve as faculty at several schools of nursing.

  • Structured transition program for transferring to another nursing area
    For qualified Edward nurses who are interested in switching to a new field of nursing, Edward's transition program provides extended orientation and supervision to nurse-transferees to areas such as the Emergency Department or the Operating Room.
