VSPN CE for Everyone
VSPN CE has courses available for every staffer in the clinic. From the Front Desk Modules to the Anesthesia Modules to Controlling Controlled Drugs courses….everyone in the clinic can participate and further their education with our courses. If the time is not convenient for a course that is offered, remember that the real time sessions are not mandatory. While they are highly recommended, you can still fully benefit from the session if you are not able to attend. Check out the courses open for enrollment for support staff on our CE Portal.
