A large part of our mission here at Concordia University Wisconsin’s Office of Continuing and Distance Education is to provide lifelong learning opportunities for people from every walk of life.

That is why we offer a variety of free, open online courses.This year we have a variety of offerings slated so stay tuned to our website for more info.

However, our latest course is a service to those who have dedicated their lives to helping others. At CUW, we have a variety of quality nursing and health care  programs and want to help support those who take care of our community’s well being.

We know that communication, especially written communication, is an essential part of every health care provider’s job. However, we’ve heard from students and faculty that there is a need for health care providers to refine these skills. The reasons are varied. Some individuals want to pursue additional graduate education; some just want to continue their journey towards excellence.

That’s why we’ve put together a free course called, “Writing for Health Care Professionals.” This course is 100% free and can be completed in an afternoon. You start and complete at your own pace, and best of all, upon completion you will earn an official Concordia University digital badge that you can put on your resume or LinkedIn profile.

We invite you to join us today for this very special offerings.
