Nothing we can say or do can begin to console any one else, let alone ourselves over the heartbreak and tragedy in Newton.
What do we do, America, because whatever we are doing is not working? We need to revisit every thing that has been “safe” and “off the table”. We need that discussion to happen.
For our sake. And the sake of the children.

Recently we have seen countless sites touting to have free online nursing ceu’s – yet they are not free.
Why do the search results show these sites?
The answer is simple (and complicated). The word FREE is one of the most popular keywords used on the internet and on websites. Whether it is free or not is not the issue…the issue is by touting the word free the sites capture some of the highest internet traffic because people are looking for free stuff. In other words, it is what people are looking for. So, diverting that traffic to other sites is their goal…not actually providing free stuff.
We aim to provide you absolutely FREE continuing education for all medical professionals. Sometimes it is not easy to find even on our site as we list over 15,000 continuing education credits from more than 200 different sources.
Nursing is a large group of medical professionals. On our site, www.ceuq.com, nursing is actually our third most searched keyword term. Respiratory followed by Radiology have the most users on ceuq.com.
While we are happy to be useful to all medical professionals, we want to be the number one free continuing education site for ALL medical professionals. This is and has been our goal since inception and going live in 2005. Until we achieve that goal, we will not be happy.
If you are in a hurry (who isn’t?), look at the left menu and click on Recommendations: Quick Hits!. Here you will see some of the most popular search sites and topics. Look for the RN (Registered Nurse), RCP (Respiratory Care Practitioner), RAD (Radiology) or ALL (All Disciplines).
No matter what the issue is, feel free to contact us for all your needs, questions, and assistance in finding courses and credits particular to your needs and profession.
We can help. We will help.

Most of the time, comments submitted are pure spam. We eliminate that right off before it has a chance to be posted on our site.
One of the legitimate comments was drawing our attention to an earlier listing of North Carolina AHEC continuing education courses.
The link will take you to the full listing of both paid and free continuing education courses. We have had no problem logging in and completing courses ourselves.
To update that posting, here is a listing of all the current FREE continuing eduction courses from http://aheconnect.com

Featured provider: Cardio Care Live
Over 30 hours of FREE CEU/CE offered from Cardio Care Live, in conjunction with John Hopkins University. All are AACME approved, many specifically for Nurses and Nursing.
Courses are presented live on an almost daily basis. They also have many archived for you to attain at your leisure and pace.
A couple of notes about these courses/credits: Always look for the accrediting body. One in particular is to look for is American Academy of Continuing Medical Education (AACME). States and professions will differ on what credits they will accept. Look at your requirements closely. Yes, they may specify AACN for nurses or AARC for respiratory but nearly every state’s organization will accept AACME because that’s where accrediting starts. So look carefully.
You will need to sign up with the institutional provider. The sign up process is pretty straight forward. But getting to the CME/CE/CEU will try your patience. These are great courses but the navigation set up is very confusing and difficult at times.
So be patient and get your CE’s/CEU’s FREE!

More than 10% of the U.S. population has some form of Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD). Although many CKD patients will develop renal failure, most will die of cardiovascular disease before dialysis becomes necessary. It has been unclear if the use of LDL-lowering therapies in CKD patients reduces the risk of cardiovascular events in this patient population.
The National Lipid Association is sponsoring this complimentary CME-certified Web activity entitled, Lipid-Lowering in the Chronic Kidney Disease Patient, to provide perspective on current clinical research in this area as well as expert guidance on optimal treatment strategies for patients with renal disease.
This activity is designed for physicians, physician assistants, nurses, nurse practitioners, pharmacists, and other health care professionals who care for people with lipid disorders and/or chronic kidney disease (CKD).
Participants will be expected to show an improvement in their knowledge and competence in the following:
* Incorporate appropriate lipid management strategies for patients with Chronic Kidney Disease, a special risk population
* Review the available clinical evidence pertaining to the effect of lipid-lowering agents on the progression of Chronic Kidney Disease
* Determine the clinical relevance of current research and the potential impact on primary or secondary prevention of coronary artery disease in patients with renal disease
