This topic may be copied for use within each physical location that purchases this inservice from In the Know. All other copying or distribution is strictly prohibited, including sharing between multiple locations and/or uploading the file or any portion thereof to the internet or to an LMS (unless a license to do so is obtained from In the Know).

In accordance with industry standards, this inservice material expires on (the listed expiration date)After that date, you may purchase a current copy of the materials by calling 877-809-5515.

This means that our copyrighted materials are for use within your specific (employment) location only.  You may print each in-service you purchase as often as desired, until it expires, for utilization with the employees for your location only.

Yes!  As long as your state allows independent-study for caregivers, you may distribute the learner’s section for your employees to take home.  It serves as a great review for them in the future, too!

Sorry, no.  Please note that it violates our copyright to alter the document in any way.  If you would like your logo added to the cover of the in-service, we can do that for you for a fee.

Our copyright states that inservices may be used only within each physical location that purchases the module.  So, no, it violates our copyright to distribute topics outside your specific physical workplace.  We do offer discounts for organizations that would like to use our inservices in multiple locations.  If you would like to find out your potential discount, please call our main office at 877-809-5515 and ask for Evan Leekley.  You may also email Evan at [email protected]

Yes, you may, as long as you comply with our copyright.  If your intranet serves nurse aides in multiple locations, you will need to purchase the topics for each location.  For example, ABC Healthcare has a company intranet that is utilized by employees in 20 locations in three states.  They would need to make a multi-site purchase for their 20 locations before adding the topics to their intranet.

In addition, please note that any topics added to an intranet MUST be secured by a password.  Our IT specialists make random checks to make sure that our topics are not accessible by the general public.

High schools, community colleges, or other not-for-profit schools may use our materials to teach their students. However,  we do not offer a reseller program for our Instructor-Led (PDF) format or E-learning modules. Please speak to one of our Caregiver Training Advisors about your unique needs.

E-Learning Courses

Every In the Know e-learning course is approved for CE credit in all states with a few exceptions.

Exceptions include:

  • Texas — You may only complete half of your CEUs online. The online courses in this library will help you meet half of your CEU requirements.
  • California — You may only complete half of your CEUs online. The online courses in this library will help you meet half of your CEU requirements.

Wouldn’t it be great if there was a one-size-fits all solution to caregiver training? However, as you know, there are variables that create unique training needs for each healthcare organization.  At In the Know, we understand that selling you a “cookie cutter” solution would be doing you and your caregivers a disservice.

We want to make sure you’re getting the exact training solution you need.

That means it’s essential to explore all the different regulations that impact your organization, your caregivers, and your clients. You’ll need to know:

  • Your state and federal guidelines,
  • Your accrediting body’s requirements (if applicable),
  • Any training required by your payers (Medicaid, Medicare, VA), and
  • Any organization-wide training obligations required by your company (or your corporate entity, if applicable).

You can start HERE by checking your state regs on our site.
