Professional Boundaries & Ethics:
Maintenance & Accountability Seminars

Nurse Edition

12 CME/CE Credits

Online and Teleconference-based Seminars

National and International Coverage


These weekly, hour-long group seminars are designed to improve relapse prevention by elevating your accountability to yourself and to others. The small group discussion facilitates communication and cohesion. Increased accountability augmented by knowledge and insight into ethics and boundary issues and your personal vulnerabilities are key to preventing future ethical problems.

You cannot afford even an accusation of misconduct if you have had a previous transgression. Consistently attended sessions, as an integrated component to your recovery program, are essential for maintaining a low violation potential.
