Online Continuing Education

The primary goals of ARN continuing nursing education are to increase awareness of new trends in rehabilitation health care and to support the continued growth of the specialty of rehabilitation nursing and individual nurses. Individual activity objectives can be accessed by logging on to each activity posstest.

Each article will have relevant objectives, but the overall objective for this educational activity is to provide rehabilitation nurses with the opportunity for learner-directed continuing education that will benefit their clinical practice and thus their patients and their families.

Activity Audience
This independent study offering is appropriate for all rehabilitation nurses.

Continuing Education Credit
Each article provides 1 nursing contact hour.

The Association of Rehabilitation Nurses (ARN) is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.

A staff member, volunteer (committee member or RNJ author), or family member who has an affiliation with a commercial company must declare that relationship in advance of involvement with an education activity that could be used as a forum to promote the interest of that company and its products.

If there are any disclosures to report, they will be indicated in the individual journal article.

Off-Label Use
Any articles containing off-label use will be indicated in the individual journal article.

Expiration Dates
Please note the individual articles appearing below are approved for continuing nursing education for a period of two years. The expiration date that appears on each individual article refers to the date after which contact hours will no longer be awarded for that activity. Once contact hours are earned, they may be used for certification and/or licensure regardless of the expiration date.

  • Click on the “Purchase CE Test” next to the article.

  • Once you are logged-in, a new window will open and allow you to purchase the selected posttest via credit card.  If you wish to purchase more than one posttest, click on the link to return to CE articles and select the additional posttest(s) that you would like to purchase. Please note: if you wish to purchase multiple posttests, you must purchase them all at one time as the site will only allow one purchase, per credit card, per day. Once all your purchases have been selected, you may complete your credit card purchase.
  • Once you have purchased the CE posttests, you will receive an e-mail with instructions on how to access the posttest. Alternatively, you may click on the "View Purchased CE" link. (If returning to this page at a later time, you will be prompted to enter the Web ID and password you used at the time of purchase.)
