Employer Benefits in Providing NBCC- and NASW-Approved CEs

Healthcare organizations that offer continuing education credits approved by NBCC and NASW are well-positioned to attract and retain qualified professionals who can provide the highest quality care for mental and behavioral health patients.

With these CE-approved courses alongside required compliance training, employers can better train non-behavioral health staff on key topics as care settings become more integrated and trauma-informed. This approach helps healthcare organizations follow value-based care practices to optimize patient outcomes by incorporating behavioral health professionals into care teams. Those professionals can then educate non-behavioral health colleagues while ensuring comprehensive and cohesive treatment plans.

Healthcare organizations save time and resources with these courses that meet regulatory requirements and include CE credits that count towards professional licensure renewal. Staff can spend more time with patients or complete courses related to the field’s latest patient care practices. Healthcare organizations can reduce training time and employee burnout.
