Summer Meetings: Pre, Post Courses Add Value
The AARC Summer Forum, coming up this July in beautiful Vail, CO, promises to deliver cutting edge information for managers and educators, and our pre and post courses only add to the value:

  • Beyond the Preceptor: A Guide to Mentoring for Program Faculty, Department Educators & Managers on July 17 is approved for up to 3.67 CRCEs and covers all the latest on how to mentor the next generation of RTs.
  • Competency College: Ensuring Competency for Students & Staff on July 20 will bring everyone up-to-speed on the latest ways to assure competency and is approved for up to 3.33 hours of CRCE.

Pre-register for both by June 24.

Encourage the Young People in Your Life to Consider RT
