The Canadian Association of Neonatal Nurses (CANN) will be hosting a series of one-day workshops in cities across the country this spring. The following workshops are confirmed:
These one-day workshops will be case-based learning opportunities incorporating the Canadian Neonatal Nursing Competencies to help support nurses preparing to write the Canadian Neonatal Nursing Specialty Certification Exam. Upon completion of the workshop, the learner will be able to identify gaps in knowledge and areas for further study.
Workshops are open to anyone interested in the opportunity to integrate current neonatal knowledge in an interactive and engaging format but does not replace exam preparation. Participants are expected to have previously studied all exam components (Exam Blueprint and Specialty Competencies) if planning to write the exam.
These workshops are open to anyone interested in neonatal education (do not need to be writing the exam).
NOTE: Participation in a workshop does not replace exam preparation nor does it guarantee exam success.
The vast majority of CNA-certified nurses renew their credential through the continuous learning option, which requires you to accumulate 100 CL hours related to your nursing practice specialty over the five-year term.
Track your learning: The easiest way for you to track your CL hours is by using the CNA form – Continuous Learning for Certification Renewal: Activities and Competencies. It is a convenient way to log your activities as you complete them. At the end of your five-year term, you submit your CL activities as part of your renewal application.
