The National Nurse-Led Care Consortium is offering a 4-part FREE CEU online educational series for nurses to learn strategies, tools, and resources related to advancing health equity, particularly in light of the lessons learned from the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. Through this series, we intend to create a space where we can facilitate supportive conversations and learning across the nursing community. Each session provides attendees with 1 Continuing Education Credit.
