The purpose of this study was to survey nurses in a rural Mid-Western city to explore what continuing education topics they find valuable; their beliefs about the importance of CE to their professional practice; where they currently obtain CE from; perceived barriers to CE; and preferred format for CE programs. Data obtained from this study can be used to plan CE programs that will appeal to a large spectrum of nurses based upon identified preferences. CE programs designed with these preferences in mind will facilitate an optimal environment for professional development, continued competence, and life-long learning.
