The Avila Institute of Gerontology hosts a multitude of webinars to offer a convenient way for long-term care professionals to stay current in their field. Most webinars also include the opportunity for Nursing Home Administrators, Nurses, Social Workers, Dietitians, Catholic Chaplains and Recreation Therapists to earn continuing education. Check the “Continuing Education” tab to see if credit hours are available for your discipline. The Avila Institute also cosponsors four webinars a year with the National Religious Retirement Office (NRRO).
