The Sigma* Education Department develops online continuing nurse education (CNE) to help nurses grow and excel in their profession. Along with online courses, the education department offers CNE through events and now webinars.

Webinars (and accompanying materials) will be freely and openly available in the Sigma Repository. Repository login is not necessary.

Sigma CNE course evaluation and course completion certificates are contained in a separate online platform and may require Sigma membership or a fee. Instructions for accessing the CNE will be listed in each item record.

Each collection in this community is based on a topic or series. There is also a general collection that will contain non-series-based webinars or a set of 2 webinars that are not part of an ongoing/open-ended series.

Sigma is an accredited provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurse Credentialing Center (ANCC) Commission on Accreditation. ​

* Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing, today known as Sigma.
