Generational Gaps: To agree to disagree | 1 Contact Hour (live and will be recorded)
Today's nursing workforce is a dynamic blend of 5 distinct generations working together. Since each generation span 15 to 20 years, each specific generation develops its approach of looking at the world.  Individuals born near the same era foster approaches and viewpoints influenced by conventional past events and experiences. When nurses are providing care or working with individuals of different generations, misunderstandings and miscommunication can often lead to additional work stress.  Recognizing each other’s differences is important to mitigate stress and improve care and practice.


  • Define the main characteristics of each defined generation.
  • Identify your own generational values and belief systems and how they differ from other generations.
  • Draw on the strengths of each generation to promote teamwork within nursing and to enhance quality patient care.


Compliance and Standards of Care | 1 Contact Hour (recorded-will be released end of June)
Embracing a collaborative approach has more to do with educating nursing professionals on learning collectively than merely encouraging nurses to talk to each other.  It takes all nurses to work together as a team to deliver quality, comprehensive care that is consistent with nursing practice standards.  With nursing teams focused on providing value-based holistic care, it is important for the team to collaborate and work together to transform the practice of nursing and overcome obstacles that impact care delivery.


  • Define the nurse’s role in collaborative care.
  • Identify strategies to be an effective teammate.
  • Discover avenues to remove obstacles that impact nursing and patient outcomes.


New Beginnings: A culture of compassion | 1 Contact Hour (recorded-will be released end of June)
Mindful care goes beyond the bedside and is inclusive of being present with colleagues to demonstrate caring. Mindful care creates compassionate care for nurses to improve their emotional resilience and, in turn, support the delivery of high-quality care.  Nurses are encouraged develop methodologies to deliver compassionate care that is unique to patient’s situations to achieve successful, quality patient outcomes.


  • Develop methodologies to enhance compassionate care.
  • Differentiate between team-based learning and individual learning as a mechanism to improve collaboration.
  • Describe innovate strategies that go beyond nursing care at the bedside.
