Quality Continuing Education for Nurses

The Center for Continued Nursing Learning (CCNL) provides excellent continuing education and professional development for nurses and other interested health care professionals. We offer multiple programs that provide the opportunity to gain contact hours and clock hours.

Our professional and educational standards, our innovative responses to changing health care markets, and our distinguished history of educating students for lives of service have earned the Pacific Lutheran University School of Nursing, and its Center for Continued Nursing Learning, a reputation for excellence in the Pacific Northwest. We invite you to become a part of our tradition by participating in one of the offerings available throughout the year.
