Share Article

UHS-Pruitt Corporation, a multi-faceted healthcare organization, announces a new benefit for seven of its affiliated skilled nursing healthcare centers, an online resource called http://www.UHSPruittUniversity.com. The customized Learning Management System was created by Care2Learn- a national provider of online training, in-services and continuing education for healthcare providers.

“I remember the first time I took a course with Care2Learn and felt that this was a great tool for enhancing our education and training efforts for our programs”, says Johnnie Sheats, Director of Education, UHS-Pruitt Corporation. “Care2Learn’s wide ranging library of courses and its learning management system gives our staff an e-learning resource that is available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. We can choose the courses staff want and need presented on their own university hosted by Care2learn.”

Over 1530 hours of accredited courses and 30 in-services are available to healthcare center administrators, nurses and certified nursing assistants at the seven locations – with plans to offer the benefits throughout the company after an initial piloting period. As Care2Learn expands its library, automatically the UHS-Pruitt library will grow allowing for updates and new course materials. As the pilot project moves forward, Ms. Sheats will add additional proprietary training and courses to http://www.UHS-PruittUniversity.com which will be one of the first of its kind in Georgia.

Neil L. Pruitt, Jr., Chairman and CEO, finds this benefit and expansion crucial to the success of the company’s commitment to its residents and also will assist as a recruitment and retention tool for staff in the challenging world of staff shortages in healthcare.

“E-Learning is a tremendous resource for health care professionals”, says Pruitt, “The 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 our partnership withCare2Learn.”
