On average, AHCA/NCAL Gero Nurse Prep alums completed the course in 10 months. We award 30 continuing education contact hours for course completion because we believe it will take most nurses about 30 hours to complete it. We encourage RNs to maintain a pace of one module per week. Completing a module per week fits into a busy work/family schedule, keeps the new knowledge fresh and creates positive momentum. RNs who maintain this pace will need about 3 months to complete the program. The most important action for success is to move through at a steady pace. That way, the material will stay fresh in your mind.
