FAQ – How to Use CoursePark’s Online Learning Network

How do I access the online nursing courses offered through CARE Centre?

You can look through the CoursePark topics in the pdf calendar document, and if you find subjects of interest, pay for your annual subscription through the convenient PayPal system. You have unlimited access to over 181 courses to take on your own timetable.

Is there any extra cost per course?
There is no additional charge for each course. You can take as many as you want over the course of your annual subscription.

When does my subscription expire?
It will expire one year from the time it is paid and processed.

Do I have a certain amount of time to complete each course?
No, you can complete the course at your own pace. There will be a listing for the number of hours it generally takes to complete the different courses, but you are under no obligation to complete any of them within that time frame.

How will the courses help my nursing career?
All courses are recognized by the Canadian Nurses Association (as well as l’OIIQ in Quebec and the American Nurses Credentialing Center) for elective and mandatory Continuing Education requirements. And employers are always very positive about professional development!

Do I get a certificate when I complete a course?
Yes, you can print out a certificate which will be sent to you electronically on completion, and it will also be added to your own Lifelong Learning Portfolio, a central repository on the CoursePark website for all of the courses you complete

What if I want to ask for advice or share a comment?
You can access shared expertise and resources on the CoursePark Community Board. CARE Centre would also like to receive feedback on your experience with the Online Nursing Network. Email Tina Novotny at tnovotny@care4nurses.org.
