Beatty, Rebecca M.
Journal of Continuing Education in Nursing, v32 n5 p203-09 Sep-Oct 2001
Responses from 199 rural Pennsylvania nurses showed that 86% had participated in recent continuing education. Deterrents included lack of support from supervisors/spouses, inflexible schedules, money, time, and travel. Administrators believed nurses were supported for professional development. Little money was available for continuing education. (SK)
