FREE ANA COVID-19 Webinars: Important PPE Information and much more

Posted 11 months ago

There is no issue that has caused greater concern for nurses related to the pandemic than the availability and use of PPE. This important on-demand webinar focuses on the current PPE guidelines and how to protect yourself.

150,000 nurses have registered for ANA’s important PPE webinar that we provided free to all nurses in March, 2020.  This new webinar represents a critical and necessary update to this earlier webinar. Since that time, our knowledge of COVID-19 and the importance of strong PPE protection has continued to grow, so ANA is providing all nurses access to this free PPE webinar that emphasizes the most current information.

If you viewed our first PPE webinar, you will want to register and view this important update.  If you did not see the first webinar, it is even more important for you to educate yourself on this critical topic.

This 60-minutes on-demand webinar is FREE for all nurses. 

Register now and receive the viewing link early the week of November 9 so you can view this content anytime, anywhere.
