Nursing Staff Development

Continuing Education

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital encourages all nurses to continue to learn and to develop themselves as well as their skills. Furthermore, Continuing Education is a requirement for obtaining and maintaining a certification. Thus, St. Jude maintains its status as an approved provider of Nursing Continuing Education.

St. Jude’s Nursing Education Department provides continuing education for staff nurses on a routine basis and collaborates with other nursing areas to provide continuing education for nurses who do not have direct patient care roles. Additionally, the department collaborates with the Shared Decision Making Professional Excellence Council to offer the annual Bettye Arnold Seminar, which features nationally known speakers.

Our most frequent courses include:

  • The Critical Care of the Pediatric Hematology/Oncology Patient Series
