Continuing Nursing Education


The Organizational Development and Learning department at East Tennessee Children’s Hospital has collaborated with the nursing staff to create ETCH Days (Engaging, Teaching, Challenging Healthcare). This program simplifies the educational process for our clinical staff by offering an organized training framework. During ETCH Days, nurses have the opportunity to update both skill and knowledge.

Annually, a needs assessment is performed to determine beneficial content for staff. Multiple facets of the job are targeted including new equipment and procedures as well as problem-focused components, allowing staff to enhance clinical and administrative procedures. The Organizational Development and Learning department collaborates with several other departments, including laboratory, respiratory care and environmental services to ensure education provided is comprehensive and balanced.

ETCH Days occur throughout the year. For more information regarding ETCH Days, please contact the Organizational Development and Learning department.
