The interactive games challenge emergency nurses to use their expertise to answer questions reminiscent of BCEN’s Certified Emergency Nurse (CEN) and Trauma Certified Registered Nurse (TCRN) Exams.
High scores are displayed on the leader board for each game, so players can see where they stand compared to other nurses around the globe. Individuals can play each game up to three times.
BCEN Learn was launched one year ago in October 2020. Since that time, the platform has tripled the number of CE courses it offers. The most popular CE courses to date focus on cardiac care, COVID-relevant topics such as ventilator management, and general trauma concepts.
In the last year, BCEN Learn has also earned three Brandon Hall Group Awards — for Best Advance in Creation of a Learning Strategy, Best Advance in Content Development and Best Learning Team.
The interactive technologies used in BCEN Learn CE courses include:
- Hot spots and flip cards
- Learner-driven interactive patient and clinical scenarios
- Process interactives that build critical thinking skills
- Custom diagrams and real-life photos and videos
- Frequent knowledge checks including rationales for answers to reinforce learning and retention
Downloadable and printable job aids accompany most courses for on-the-job reference. Nurses may revisit any course as often as they like for one year after purchase.
“BCEN Learn courses are designed to equip nurses with the knowledge they need for every patient that comes under their care,” said BCEN CEO Janie Schumaker, MBA, BSN, RN, CEN, CENP, CPHQ, FABC. “Emergency nurses asked for more specialty-specific content to help maintain and advance their expertise, and BCEN Learn delivers high-quality, interactive and engaging learning experiences, any time and anywhere they are.”
