New Online Learning Management
System Features Educational
Opportunities in a Modern Format
Since ENA launched the educational platform ENA LEARN in June, members have been taking advantage of all the ducational opportunities available to them on the site.
ENA LEARN is a branded learning management solution with a
modern feel and an improvement in technology and
functionality from the previous system, said Beth Ciarrachi,
e-learning manager at ENA.
“ENA LEARN includes searchable content and has an enhanced
user interface,” she said. “We offer sneak peeks at popular
courses, giving members the option to view a snippet before
buying. Once you buy the course, you can post the purchase to
Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest. Our learning management
system also lets you search for courses you purchased
previously, track your contact hours and classify them by
category, which is important for reporting purposes.”
In the first month after go-live, Ciarrachi reported a significant
uptick in enrollment for Course in Advanced Trauma Nursing
modules, as well as free CE offerings.
ENA LEARN Updates
In August, ENA’s CEN Online Review Course was released,
including 12 interactive modules with video and
corresponding charts, tables and handouts, as well as practice
pretests, posttests and a test preparation strategy module.
The course is based on the 2016 blueprint from the Board of
Certification for Emergency Nursing.
ENA LEARN is updated with one or two new free CE classes a
month. ENA members can access more than 20 free courses
and a discount on additional educational course offerings for
emergency nursing topics of interest.
By next year, ENA LEARN will include social media discussion
features, allowing users to interface with peers on network
Though the new platform is designed to connect with
members in the evolving digital age, the association views
ENA LEARN as an adjunct, not a replacement, for in-person
“We’re offering a blended learning model,” Ciarrachi said. “As a
nurse, it will always be important to practice your skills in a
live format.” n
