Center for Continued Nursing Learning

Expanding your horizons

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 it’s 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. Many workshops, seminars, and short- and long-term courses will enable registered nurses and other health professionals to stay up-to-date with the latest research and skills, refresh previously-acquired information, and ultimately improve health care for society.
