SNJPC is committed to providing the best in continuing education for South Jersey's maternal and child health care provider community. We offer high-quality opportunities which integrate current theory with best practices while taking into consideration time and budgetary constraints. Courses bolster provider skills to ensure the region's maternal and child health care services are models of excellence.
Professional education topics are determined by regional need and member recommendations. Formats include traditional conferences, webinars and on-site training. SNJPC is an approved provider of nursing contact hours, but we can secure other continuing education credits as needed.
