Because What You Know Matters

Living in Iowa, nurse continuing education has always been an important part of license renewal.  Back in the day, we would connect with other nurses from the state at a conference or seminar, which was a fun part of the learning process -- the networking, sharing problems, best practices...but we have become so busy, that getting away from the work place is becoming harder and harder to do.

Online learning has emerged as a workable solution for  the busy practitioner who needs to obtain continuing education hours. Online learning is fast, convenient, and accessible to the busy nurse.   At Words Matter, we sincerely believe that learning is and must remain a lifelong process.  So when we craft an online continuing education course, our objectives are to define, inform, and educate health care personnel about a disease process, health condition, or safety measure that could impact the health care worker or the persons they are caring for. 

For today's nurse, we believe that meeting your continuing education requirements should be an easily accessible process, convenient for you, and affordable.  Each Words Matter course is worth 2.4 contact hours based on a
​50-minute contact hour and 2.0 contact hours, based on a 60-minute contact hour and only costs you $5.00. Simply choose a course, pay with your credit card, download the course to your computer or electronic device, and you're set to go. You just read the material when it's convenient for you, complete the learner self-assessment review at the end of the course, mail in your self-corrected answer sheet, and we email you your Certificate of Completion.   Done!
Accessible, convenient, and affordable.

We promise to provide you with an online learning course that will enhance your nursing practice, whether it's as a nurse practitioner, a nurse working at the bedside, or the nurse providing care in other health settings, because what you know matters.

Linda  Fisk, President and CEO of Words Matter, brings over 41 years of experience in nursing and nurse continuing education to Words Matter.  

Our Story

"There is no end to education. It is not that you read a book, pass an examination, and finish with education. The whole of life, from the moment you are born to when you die, is a process of learning."
