Calgary Study Group Spring Session

Posted by on Feb 20, 2019 in Health System News | 2 comments

Greetings to our AGNA members, there continues to be a lot of interest in Gerontology study groups, both for those pursuing CNA Certification in May, as well as for those wishing to pursue professional development in this specialty area.  We are using the competency areas listed on the CNA website. We are looking for those who would like to study as well as those who could help to facilitate or act as mentors (great if you need continuing education hours to maintain your certification!) Tonight we are offering an information session, which takes just a few moments to log in or dial in to listen by phone. AGNA Spring 2019 Study group poster If you aren't able to join us, please contact us at or through this website as there will still be time to ask questions before we start meetings in the first week of March. Hope to hear from you soon! Sincerely, the Calgary AGNA Chapter...

Calgary Fall 2018 Study Group

Posted by on Aug 16, 2018 in Calgary Blog, Health System News | 0 comments

Hello to all fellow AGNA Members! We are excited to announce we will run an 8 week long study group this fall in Calgary.  Our information night will be held September 5th (see poster below.) The study group was originally designed to support RNs who were preparing to write CNA's Certification exam in Gerontology, and still follows the competency blueprint set out (see the CNA website.)  There has also been significant interest from our LPN members in attending study groups to support their professional growth and practice. We invite ALL regulated nurses who are interested to attend or log in to the information meeting. Please note, study groups are not a pre-written course to passively view; they are peer groups with extra support, and will require an 8 week commitment. Each person has the responsibility to review materials that follow the competency blueprint, and discuss that learning with other group members. Please see the attached poster, and share with any colleagues who might be interested. CGNA gerio exam prep meeting 2018Sep05 mtg In an effort to make this available to as many members as possible we will trial online format for anyone who cannot be in attendance for meetings and to view presentations from experts.  See below for login information if you wish to join us online: Study group info session Wed, Sep 5, 2018 5:15 PM - 7:15 PM MDT Please join my meeting from your computer, tablet or smartphone.
