The Helene Fuld Health Trust National Institute for Evidence-based Practice in Nursing and Healthcare Inaugural Summit


Summit Agenda & Kickoff Reception

Summit Agenda

Continuing nursing education units will be provided for the summit.
The Ohio State University College of Nursing is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.

Many professions outside of nursing will be attending this event. Some professional boards view Nursing CEs as part of their acceptable continuing education requirements as long as it pertains to your practice. We would encourage you to contact your specific certifying board to inquire whether your profession offers reciprocal continuing education credits that are provided by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.
