Educational Opportunities
SCAHRM’s educational opportunities include monthly education programs, and an annual educational conference that is regarded as one of the best quality conferences in the field. We plan and design programs that will stimulate thoughts and actions, encourage people to grow in their professional roles, and keep our members well-informed about new legislative requirements, clinical considerations, loss control considerations, litigation claim management, risk financing, and risk prevention techniques. Continuing education credit is provided through the Board of Registered Nursing and the California State Bar to qualified attendees.In addition, the SCAHRM Communication Committee provides education through the quarterly E-News publication.
