20NE038 - MAHEC's Project ECHO®: Nurse Executive/Advanced Nurse Certification Review Course (8-Part Video Teleconference Series)


Project ECHO® is a lifelong learning and guided practice model that revolutionizes nursing education to provide convenient best-practice specialty nursing care. ECHO is led by an expert or team that uses multi-point videoconferencing to conduct virtual learning sessions.

Today’s nursing executives and managers are expected to maintain competency in their role. Certification, as a Nurse Executive or Nurse Executive-Advanced, is one way to assure an understanding of management theory and its practical applications.
