Learning Needs Assessment NUR588 May 26, 2014 Learning Needs Assessment Learning does not cease once a nurse receives a diploma and license. Continuing education (CE) should be a priority of registered nurses (RN) and their medical facilities because it helps improve the care given to patients. Many RNs share this sentiment because according to Timmins (2008), “The importance of ongoing continuing education and professional development for nurses is increasingly recognized” (p. 59).
