  • Who is the Return to Nursing (RTN) courses and bundle program for

    The RTN program is a refresher designed for acute care nurses who have been out of the nursing workforce but wish to return to practice. The entire program consists of seven courses that can be purchased individually, or as a complete program (bundle). The program covers important topics, including: • Nursing as a Profession & Discipline • Contemporary Issues in Healthcare • Fundamental Concepts of Nursing Practice • Pharmacology • Health Assessment • Mental Health Conditions • Acute Medical-Surgical Health Conditions

  • Is IntelyEdu or Sigma providing the ANCC contact hours for the RTN courses and bundle?

    Sigma is issuing the contact hours. While both IntelyEdu and Sigma are accredited providers of nursing continuing professional development (NCPD) by the ANCC Commission on Accreditation, Sigma is the accredited provider for these specific courses and the bundle and is responsible for adherence to ANCC criteria. IntelyEdu is a joint provider and is providing the platform for this education activity.

  • How long do the RTN courses take to complete?

    Each individual RTN course is different and ranges from 2.5 hours to just over 15 hours. For all the courses combined or the bundle option, it will take approximately 54 hours to complete.

  • Are you offering continuing education hours, contact hours, NCPD hours, or CEUs for RTN courses?

    Accredited ANCC providers offer continuing education (CE) hours in the form of NCPD contact hours also known simply as NCPD. The NCPD contact hours will count towards your CE requirements for certification and licensure. One CE contact hour is equal to one NCPD contact hour. Continuing Education Units (CEU) are different than NCPD and CE hours. While we do not issue CEUs specifically, ten (10) CE hours are equal to one CEU.

  • What do I need to do to earn the NCPD hours for the RTN course(s)?

    Complete the following for each course to receive your certificate of completion with your NCPD hours: • Complete ALL components of each individual course lesson module in their entirety AND • Score at least 80% on all quizzes/tests AND • Complete the evaluation at the end of the course.

  • Is there anything important I need to know about how to complete each course or module?

    The lesson modules in this course are interactive and use a media player. To receive credit, you must complete all tasks on each slide, video, etc. If you click "Complete and Continue" at the bottom of the screen without completing it — you will be advanced to the next lesson, but the system will consider the section incomplete and will not issue a certificate.

  • Once I complete the RTN course and the evaluation, how do I get my certificate of completion?

    Your certificate will automatically be emailed to the email you have on record once you complete all requirements listed above. If it isn’t in your email Inbox, please check your email spam folder.
