COVID-19 Updates is a series of free virtual events that provides viewers with the latest information and resources related to the COVID-19 pandemic. VNA collaborates with organizations, legislators, hospitals, healthcare professionals, and other entities across the commonwealth to deliver multiple free events each month. Viewers have the chance to receive speaker presentations and ask questions at the end of each session. VNA is even offering free CE for these events!
If you are unable to attend the live viewing, a free full recording will be posted to VNA's On-Demand CE Library along with the CE evaluation the following day. Please note that all of these events have registrations due to capacity restrictions.
