Some time back, ARIN chose to change its vision from the education of radiology nurses to the education of nurses on radiology. What may appear as a simple change in focus is actually a dramatic change in the education on radiology in the world.
Earlier this year, ARIN launched a new program called “Radiology Nursing for the Non-Radiology Nurse”. This 16 module, 4.6 CE program is designed to educate nurses throughout the healthcare arena to have a better understanding of all things related to diagnostic imaging and how to prepare their patients prior to procedures and after.
We are excited to expand our vision to better help our peers to provide the best in patient care. As ARIN moves forward, we anticipate expanding our educational offerings to our membership and beyond.
Along this line, ARIN has expanded our Annual Convention to include the Fall Symposium taking place September 26-29, 2019 in Columbus, Ohio. We have recognized the need within the organization for a high quality, lower cost alternative to a 5-day meeting. If you haven’t signed up, it’s not too late to join us in the Buckeye state for a great meeting and the opportunity to obtain 12 CE’s.
As usual, we haven’t stopped there. ARIN continues to offer the Imaging Review Course around the country. In addition to the IRC being offered at the Fall Symposium, we have announced a course taking place at Duke University Hospital November 2-3, 2019.
Other courses have been requested on both coasts for 2020. Look to the website for announcements of upcoming courses in California, New England, and Florida. Our Master Faculty aren’t resting on their laurels though. They continue to review and research the latest in imaging and radiology practices to provide the most accurate education available.
We encourage all of our members to assist their fellow nurses within their facilities to increase their education on the best clinical practice for their patients. Together, we can improve patient care.
