We made it home from England about 6 p.m. and restarted the adventure at 4 a.m. the next morning. Katie got to stay at home while Katora Campbell and I headed to Nashville for a Tennessee Nurses Association meeting. Fortunately for us and the other people traveling on I-40 East, Georgia Oliver was driving.
Sharon Adkins, the President of TNA, was our hostess. The presenter was from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). SHe was very helpful in explaining the ins and outs of continuing education for nurses and how to set up a CNE provider unit. I am very excited that Katora and the leadership of Church Health have approved my request to set up the Westberg Institute as a provider unit. It is a lot of paperwork and planning, but as a result, we will better serve faith community nurses with our courses, the Westberg Symposium, and future webinars, and courses by following the ANCC/TNA guidelines for quality, unbiased, evidence-based continuing education.
