The Canadian Gerontological Nursing Association is excited to announce a series of webinars to help prepare for Gerontological Nursing Certification.

Beginning September 5, 2019 and running every Thursday for 9 weeks, the sessions are one hour in length and will include both content review and practice questions.

The per session cost is $20 for CGNA members and $30 for non-members.

CGNA members also receive access to archived webinars, housed in the ‘Members Only’ section of the CGNA website.  As a CGNA member, you also have access to a 20% discount voucher for writing a CNA certification exam or renewing certification.

Webinar sessions are open to all CGNA members, with a special welcome to PN members writing in the inaugural cycle for CNA PN Certification!

Please share this information with your colleagues!  If you are not already a member, join CGNA and save on the certification webinars, along with other member benefits, including the 20% discount voucher for writing a CNA certification exam!
