Continuing educational development is supported by an active Nursing Center for Clinical and Professional Development, on-unit nurse educators and on-site educational opportunities. Most programs are awarded contact hours via the Massachusetts Association of Registered Nurses. As part of Lahey's commitment to lifelong learning, all programs are offered free of charge to licensed nurses at Lahey and those who have retired from Lahey. In addition, an extra benefit to our licensed nurses is a pro-rated paid day of continuing education.
