Eldersburg, MD (PRWEB) November 1, 2004
Nexion Health, Inc., a premiere skilled nursing and rehabilitation care company, announces a new benefit for its affiliate facilities, an online resource, http://www.NexionUniversity.com. The customized Learning Management System was created by Care2Learn Â a national provider of online training, in-services and continuing education for healthcare providers.
ÂWe believe that Care2Learn offers a wonderful tool for enhancing our education and training efforts at our facilitiesÂ, says Fran Kirley, CEO and President of Nexion. ÂCare2LearnÂs extensive post-acute care library of continuing education and its learning management system give our employees an e-learning resource that is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.Â
Over 1500 hours of accredited courses and 32 in-services are available to all Nexion staff including physical, occupational and speech therapists at all Nexion owned and operated locations. As Care2Learn expands its library the Nexion University will grow, allowing for new in-services and new course materials. As the online university expands, specific proprietary courses will be made available to all staff allowing the internal expertise to be distributed with ease via the web. Meera Riner, Vice President of Facility Operations for Nexion, finds this benefit and expansion crucial to the success of the companyÂs commitment to its recruitment and retention program in the challenging world of staff shortages in healthcare.
ÂE-Learning is a tremendous resource for health care professionalsÂ, says Riner, ÂThe flexibility of the Internet gives our busy caretakers an easy, convenient and cost-effective way to stay current and maintain licensure. Being able to control where, when, and how long the training/learning takes place is invaluable. We are very excited about the ability to offer unlimited continuing education to our staff. We look forward to a long partnership withCare2Learn.Â
