I had a comment by a reader recently regarding trauma-informed care and kids, in which she mentioned that trauma and trauma-informed care isn’t just limited to abuse and violence.

Have you seen the CDC’s new Understanding Evidence site? It’s specifically geared toward those of us who work in the area of violence, and really, please go spend some time with it. As a bonus–free nursing CEs upon completion of each module. If you’re not sure how to use the new interactive site PreventConnect has [...]
I am pleased to announce that IAFN and NSVRC are offering a 6 week online SANE Sustainability course, beginning in April. I will be teaching it, along with Jennifer Pierce-Weeks, and it will be specifically aimed at the issues that impact program managers, such as budgeting, recruitment and retention, and more. There is an application [...]
I hope everyone had a peaceful holiday (or at least enjoyed a few days off if you don’t celebrate). Today I want to round out some continuing education sources for those of you in need of finishing the year with a few extra in hand (see here for Part I). All are available for nursing [...]
If you’re looking at your licensure and certification requirements and realizing you need to garner some additional CE hours before the end of the year, here are some ideas for credits that are $25 or less.

My general experience is that people are lousy at dealing with conflict directly. I was reminded of this relatively recently, as many of you may recall. So I couldn’t be happier with the fact that IAFN is offering a webinar, Ethical Communication–Making it Work. It will be held October 2nd from 2-3:15 pm ET. Cost [...]

It’s important to note that this session will only concentrate on the two areas of the exam that have traditionally [...]
