About Us
Who we are

We are a continuing education company independently owned and operated by a nurse practitioner. We pride ourselves in providing interactive, "hands-on" nationally approved continuing education courses to nurse practitioners and physician assistants. Our courses are informative, skills based workshops- we accept no sponsors. We provide a formal presentation of anatomical review, multiple injection techniques for each site discussed-pros & cons for each and hands on practice of techniques using joint injection mannequins- that will indicate when the needle tip is in correct location.

Our goal is to help you learn techniques to provide better patient care and improve your marketability.
