MED-ED - Where nursing meets innovation
Established in 1983, MED-ED believes that professional nursing competence is founded upon lifelong learning, which cultivates the knowledge necessary to ensure optimum patient care and safety. Offering seminars, self-directed eLearning courses and hospital consultations, MED-ED leads the industry in providing nurses with continuing education that focuses on evidence-based practice and developing competence and critical thinking skills. MED-ED is committed to excellence in continuing education, unparalleled customer care and meeting the rigorous requirements of the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) as a nationally accredited provider.
Started as a “workshop at the beach,” CURRENTS has always had the same focus: Providing educational content that promotes optimum patient care. MED-ED CEO Pam Allen’s vision for CURRENTS was to create an atmosphere that promotes learning as well as easy access to staff and speakers. This type of relationship-building was demonstrated in 2008 in New Orleans, when CURRENTS included a community outreach with the help of then-mayor Ray Nagin. Speakers and attendees provided free screenings for residents of the 4th Ward, who were still dealing with the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina. The goal of CURRENTS has always been to bring healthcare providers together in a welcoming and fun environment and to renew the pledge to improve patient care.
