Need a few extra CME or CE credits? Huntington Hospital affiliated physicians and nurses can now earn 4 CME/CE credits by completing the library’s online learning tutorials on the Become a Journal Articles/eBooks Power Searcher on OvidSP webpage.

When all four levels have been successfully completed, log on to NetLearning, look for the course in the ENROLL IN CBL section, complete the 6 post-course evaluation questions and sign an acknowledgement statement. A CE certificate will be generated for 4 CE credits.
It’s that simple!
