FAQ - Frequently Asked Questions

  1. Do I need to register (or pay) to review the classes?
    There is NO CHARGE to register and NO CHARGE to look at the Course Overviews

    There IS a cost associated with reading the actual course content and receiving continuing ed credit.
  2. WHO is the target audience for these courses?
    Can I take these courses if I'm not a nurse, a social worker or a case manager?
    These courses are for the benefit and education of anyone interested in learning more about the topics offered. The Introductory courses are especially focused on the basics of case management.
  3. Can I print off the course rather than reading it on the screen?
    Just click on the frame containing the course content. Go to the File drop down menu and select Print.
  4. What if I loose my connection to the Internet or must leave before finishing the course?
    Once you have paid for a course, you can come back at any time to either complete reading the material and/or take (or re-take) the test.

    The Course Listing Table on YOUR ACCOUNT screen displays the status of --
    • courses taken,
    • tests taken and passed and
    • certificates printed.

    It gives you the opportunity to review the course content, take (or re-take) the test and print (or re-print certificates.
  5. What if I forget my Login ID or my password OR I'm having trouble getting logged on?
    If you forget either your ID or your password, contact the Webmaster either by email or phone: OR 303-300-2273.

    If you are having trouble logging in, it could be for 1 of the following reasons:
    a. You are entering the incorrect ID: It is possible that you are entering a letter when you should be entering a number, or vice versa. The ID assigned to you upon successful completion of your registration is in the following format: XX99999. XX=the first 2 initials of your name. For example: if your first name is Cathy, the first 2 digits of our login ID would be -- CA. The last 5 digits of your login ID (99999
    ) are numeric. Knowing that these 5 characters are all numbers will confirm that all of the Os are zeros NOT Ohs.
    b. Passwords are CASE SPECIFIC and the password you are entering is either the wrong characters or the wrong case: First, confirm your password. Then check the case. If you originally entered a password of CAT, then 'cat' would NOT work. Neither would 'Cat'. Making the password CASE SPECIFIC adds an additional layer of security to your account.
  6. Can I print my Certificate of Completion more than once?
    YES. You can actually print certificates as many times as desired - for each completed course . Re-prints after the original will indicate DUPLICATE. To re-print your certificate: LOG IN. You will immediately go to YOUR ACCOUNT -- All courses that you have completed and passed will be displayed in the Course Listing Table at the bottom of YOUR ACCOUNT screen. The Course Listing Table can be sorted in 2 ways: Alphabetically (by Course ID) OR Chronologically (by Date Taken) -- TO SORT: click on the appropriate column heading in your Course Listing Table.
  7. What if I don't pass the test the first (or 2nd or 3rd) time?
    You can always go back and re-take the test. Log on and go to YOUR ACCOUNT. In the Course Listing Table at the bottom of that screen, find the course you would like to retake and click on the far right column where it displays: Re-take test. (Don't forget you can view the course content while taking the test -- this should help you to answer the questions correctly.)
  8. Once I'm taking the test, can I go back and look at the course content?
    YES. At the top of the test there is a link to bring up a small window containing the course content.. (Click on: View Course Content)  You can adjust the size of the window for your convenience. If you click on this link and nothing happens, chances are the window is BEHIND your current screen. To adjust the window so that it comes up in FRONT: minimize the test screen (in upper right corner of your screen). Hopefully you will see the content window. Close that window. Maximize the test screen and re-click on View Course Content.
  9. After I pass the test, will I be provided with the correct answers to any question I missed. I want to go back and make sure I know the course material?
    YES. Once you successfully passed a test, you will be shown this information at the same time you are shown your passing grade. Should you want to go back and review your missed test questions, make sure you write down or note the information when it is first shown to you. This information is ONLY displayed when you first PASS the course.
  10. What if I didn't write down the correct answers and try to retake the test but fail it, what happens then? Will I need to keep taking the test till I pass it again??
    NO. Hopefully this doesn't happen and you know the course material well enough to pass the test another time. However, should you try to retake the test and fail, your original passing grade is not affected.
  11. What about refunds and grievances?
    Once you have printed a certificate, there is no refund for that course. However, if you read a course and feel that you should receive a refund, please contact us; we are happy to visit with you about your concerns. Refunds will be considered on an individual basis. We are committed to providing valuable and interesting course material that meets your continuing education needs. We encourage you to call us on our toll free # 303-300-2273 to discuss your concerns/questions/complaints, etc..
  12. Do I need to complete an evaluation for every course?
    All accrediting organizations require a completed evaluation for each course taken. Additionally, it is our only way to obtain feedback so we can continue improving the quality of our course material.
    Thank you, in advance, for sharing your comments with us regarding the courses offered on this site. If you have additional questions, comments, complaints or recommendations, please contact us: Email: OR Call: 303-300-2273.
  13. What if I don't have a printer to get my Certificate?
    If you are unable to print your certificate from your current computer, there are several options:
  • either find a friend who has a printer -- log on to their computer (with your ID and password) and print your certificate from their location,
  • email us and request a copy ( You must include your ID, your password and the course ID and title you completed, OR
  • call us and we will mail/fax you a copy of your Certificate. Our toll free number is: 303-300-2273

14. How do you select and screen your authors?

We come in contact with authors primarily through their published material. The Acquisitions Editors of the Publisher looks at the author's qualifications first. The degree of qualification may vary based on whether the published material is from a clinical reference book or a text book.

Some of the other factors used to determine a qualified author are:

  • their education;
  • teaching experience;
  • clinical experience;
  • writing ability and
  • their publishing experience.

Most of our authors are masters prepared, though it is not fair to say that it is the case with every single course; since many have doctoral degrees.

If an author is well known on the lecturing circuit, or sits on the board of a professional association, that also demonstrates a level of respect and acceptance by the nursing / case management community.

Published material is submitted to various reviewers for feedback prior to actual publication. The process for qualifying the reviewers is similar to that of the authors. These reviewers are asked to read and critique a body of work, in their specialty, for:

  • accuracy,
  • current content,
  • readability and
  • applicability to a course or clinical practice area.

The reviewers comments are taken into consideration by both the author(s) and the editors and included in the final manuscript (if applicable.

Many of our authors and reviewers are well known, well respected practitioners that continue to write and revise their publications each edition.
