New Continuing Competency Requirements

Have you reviewed the Continuing Competency Guidance and Information Booklet for Nurses, Employers and Facilities?  In it, the Board of nursing states "Act 127, SLH 2015, was signed into law on June 19, 2015 by Governor Ige.  Act 127 entitled Relating to Nurses would require continuing competency for the renewal of a Hawai'i nurse license." 

To help you think about what learning activity may be best for you, the Center asked that question to nurses across the state who are engaged in lifelong learning.

A Better Way of Getting Primary Care

For certain specialties, we just don't have the population base to support a specialist.  For primary care, however, it's essential that there is access for everyone who lives in East Hawaii.  Otherwise, their health will be compromised, and in the end, they will need more expensive and intensive treatment.
