Online Continuing Education Offered on VHCA Website

The Virginia Health Care Association (VHCA), in partnership with Relias Learning, offers online continuing education courses.  The Relias Learning continuing education courses are specifically relevant for long term care providers and are approved by NAB for nursing home and assisted living administrators and apply toward the continuing education requirement for licensed nurses through ANCC approval.  The Relias Learning program provides VHCA members with a significant increase in the number of NAB or ANCC approved online continuing education courses.  These courses are available in the eLearning section of the VHCA website.   Click on NAB approved courses or ANCC approved courses to find a list of available courses to meet your needs.

In Virginia, nursing home administrators are required to complete 20 hours of NAB approved continuing education each year, of which 10 hours may be completed online.  Nurses must complete 15 hours of continuing education plus 640 hours of active practice as a nurse, or 30 hours of continuing education each year.  The VHCA website will continually be updated with new courses so check the website routinely for your online course needs.  By purchasing an online course from Relias Learning available through the VHCA website, you are supporting VHCA.
