This is the audit only version of this course. Its intent is to provide you with knowledge only; there will be no completion certificate issued for this version of the course. You will not attend the skill station section of this course; the online modules are the only section you will need to complete in order to receive a nursing contact hours certificate. The course expires on 6/30/2020; there are no extensions permitted; if you are not completed with the course by the expiration date then you will lose your access and any progress you have made in the online course. There are NO refunds for incomplete, no completion, of partial completion for this course; all registrations are final.
Transferring to the full version (non-audit version) of this course:
If there is space in a skills session, within 30 days of completing the online portion, and passing the final exam with a score of 70% or greater then you may transfer your registration to the full version (paying the difference in tuition); however, the skills station must be completed before June 30th, 2020 finding such a course is subject to an available seat being available; the skills stations fill up and sell out; therefore, it is highly likely they may not be an available seat in a skills session, which is needed to issue a completion certificate.
If you feel you will need a completion certificate for this course then it is recommended that you register for an available seat in the non-audit/full version of this course. Click here for the non-audit only version:
