It's Easier than You Think!

For nurses whose license has been inactive or expired for two or more, but less than five years, the Colorado Board of Nursing requires nurses to demonstrate competency. The Board accepts "proof of competency" through up to 40 contact hours of continuing education. The Colorado Center for Nursing Excellence has recently been approved as a provider of nursing continuing professional development by the Colorado Nurses Association, accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.

As of January 3, 2022 the Center's RN Refresher Lite students will be eligible to receive 40 nursing professional development contact hours upon course completion. Our Colorado Board of Nursing approved courses are online, independent study courses designed with your needs in mind. Flexible formats allow you to update your nursing knowledge and skills while working within your busy schedule to get your license reinstated. No travel required!

Not from Colorado? We may be able to help you get re-licensed in your state. Check out our website or contact us at
refresher@coloradonursingcenter.org for more information!

Timeline photosTwo Contracts Secured for Workforce Development

This month #CCNW received great news from the State of CT and the Regional Workforce Development Boards that will allow us to use our expertise to support statewide nursing workforce development efforts.

• CCNW will act as the Nurse Consultant to the 3-year $36M CT Health Horizons Initiative providing: data, innovative workforce development strategies, and support to the nursing schools funded under this statewide nursing and social work project. CCNW will receive $150,000 each year for 3-years.

• CCNW will continue its 12-year relationship with The Workplace, Inc., one of 5 regional workforce development boards in CT, providing our CORE Skills and Customer Service Training to residents seeking to enter the healthcare workforce. Our expert nurses will teach these online courses to over 425 candidates annually. CCNW will be funded up to $250,000 for our work over the 3 years.

• CCNW’s Certified Nursing Assistant Course, created specifically to meet the needs of our post-acute care employers, received approval by the CT DOL to qualify for WIOA funding.

Thank you to the Workforce Alliance for championing these efforts on our behalf. The course development was funded by a grant from Capital Workforce Partners in 2021. This will enable CT residents who wish to participate in our CNA Course to access funding to pay for the tuition . Should you be a post-acute care employer seeking CNA’s we would love to partner with you to fill your current CNA vacancies.

Did you know that leaders are essential in creating a healthy workplace culture?

Organizations can support well-being through leadership responsibilities that promote:

- Leaders owning staff experience and well-being just as much as the individual.
- Leaders knowing their staff on a human level to identify other factors involved in well-being such as mood, character, lifestyle, etc.
- Leaders encouraging personal and professional autonomy.

To find out more about how organizations can support healthy leaders and how healthy leaders can support a healthy culture, visit our website: oregoncenterfornursing.org/rn-well-being-project/healthy-leadership-driving-healthy-culture/

Are your employees included in decision-making conversations in your workplace? Research shows that when all voices are included in decisions it builds trust around leadership and promotes camaraderie in the work culture.

Here are some examples of ways to do this:
1. Consider direct care level councils.
2. Maintain bi-directional communication and feedback.
3. Ensure that feedback sessions are at inclusive times and locations to ensure accessible participation.
