The “Using RN Continuing Education as a Weapon Against Rising Costs and Threats to Quality” webinar on Tuesday, March 18, from 2-3pm EST will focus on how the current LTC environment can be improved by an intentional, comprehensive continuing education program for RNs that prepares them to achieve Board Certification.
The modest investments LTC facility administrators have made in this program have had a positive impact on the LTC RN workforce, their effectiveness on the job, and their RN turnover rate in a LTC environment characterized by rising acuity of LTC patients, tighter reimbursements, and more stringent regulations. Administrators are finding that the benefits of this program to their residents and financial bottom line far outweigh its costs.
- Correlate the attainment of RN board certification with standards of clinical excellence
- Explore the relationships between comprehensive education, RN retention, and overall quality of care outcomes
- Provide data supporting the business case of comprehensive RN education and professional development investment

Webinar for Journalists – “How the Affordable Care Act Affects Baby Boomers and Medicare Beneficiaries” presented by the Kaiser Family Foundation’s Media Fellowships Program.
Featuring two Kaiser Family Foundation experts, the webinar began with brief presentations of the major changes for older people. Senior Fellow Karen Pollitz focused on the ACA’s role for baby boomers who are not yet 65 and eligible for Medicare and their access to new coverage options in marketplaces and/or their eligibility for premium subsidies or Medicaid expansions. Associate Director of the Program on Medicare Policy Juliette Cubanski talked about how the ACA impacts Medicare benefits and beneficiaries. We also touched on some of the major open enrollment issues for both Obamacare and Medicare. Most of the hour was devoted to a question and answer session with the participating audience.
