Workplace Harassment: Your Rights & Responsibilities

In 2018, The Illinois Legislature enacted a law that requires all licensed professionals who are required to have continuing education to obtain 1.0 hour of continuing education credit beginning January 2020 license renewal.

This program will assist nurses to
