With professional licensing there is a responsibility to earn continuing education credits per licensing board specifications. Business leaders should consider and plan for professional development and continuing education for health care professionals. Walsh (2015) presents a positive correlation between the worth of professional development and its high costs, as well as its importance in securing a work force.
Since it’s costly for a health care entity to provide professional development, and since education is mandatory to support licensed health care workers, then let’s think about benefits that are reaped. When a business absorbs the cost of professional training, then the result is an educated work force that can put into practice what’s been learned. The expectation is increase quality.
Class: When a business covers the cost of continuing education for licensed staff, what are some ways that (in addition to supporting license renewals and a compliant work force) benefits of the education might be experienced? How might higher quality be measured; as dollars are spent on workers’ professional development does quality within the organization increase proportionally and how might this be measured? Can you think of some examples?
