The Enhanced Program aims to provide education and support to current CBC nurses and those who are interested in joining this specialty field.
The Program provides access to:
- 30 courses created by CBC Nurses for CBC Nurses

- Technical Assistance Sessions with CBC Nurse Mentors
- 1:1 mentorship with CBC Nurse Mentors
- Technical Assistance Discussion Forums
- Technical Support to address Enhanced Program Participant inquiries, technical issues, or logistical concerns.
For those enrolled in the Enhanced Program, we recommend setting aside around 10 hours per month to engage with the Program’s content and activities. Dedicating this time each month can help you make the most of the learning opportunities available and fully immerse yourself in the enriching experience alongside your fellow participants. Employers are encouraged to support the completion of your program activities during your work day.
There will be three cohorts, each lasting six months. Cohort dates for each:
Cohort 1 – March 1, 2024 to August 31, 2024
Cohort 2 – September 1, 2024 to February 28, 2025
Cohort 3 – January 25, 2025 to June 30, 2025
Up to sixty learners will be accepted to participate in each of the three Enhanced Program cohorts. There will be no more than 20 people assigned to a group with a mentor.
In the Enhanced Program, we ask that participants fully engage in a range of key activities integral to the program’s success.
- Participating in the once a month group Technical Assistance Sessions, which are facilitated by experienced CBC Nurse mentors.
- Engaging in 1:1 mentorship sessions, offering personalized guidance and support.
- Contributing to discussions in the Technical Assistance Discussion Forums, where nurse-to-nurse learning and mentor insights come together.
- Completing the 30 courses, designed to enhance your knowledge and skills.
- Optional and Encouraged: Monthly guest speaker presentations by experts in a variety of fields.
The monthly Technical Assistance Sessions are facilitated by our amazing nurse mentors. Enhanced Program participants will have the chance to discuss, ask questions, and get more insights about the Program and courses. It’s important for participants to attend these sessions, which will last 1.5 to 2 hours. Participants will be able to sign up for a date and time that works best for them.
Our Technical Assistance Discussion Forums are hosted on a private virtual platform, creating a dynamic space where nurse learners can engage with nurse mentors and fellow participants. These discussion forums cover a wide array of topics related to community-based care, industry trends, and professional growth.
As an Enhanced Program Participant, plan to spend about 2 hours per month in the forums. Your involvement can vary from asking questions to actively participating in ongoing discussions. We value your contributions and look forward to the diverse perspectives each participant brings to these rich, collaborative discussions.
Our NurseLearn mentors host virtual office hours, offering a great oppotunity for Enhanced Program participants to connect one-on-one with their mentor. Set aside a minimum of one hour each month for these meetings. These sessions are an important part of the Enhanced Program curriculum, offering personalized mentorship to support and enhance your learning.
For those in the Enhanced Program, we suggest setting aside around 5 hours each month to work through the various course modules. Completing all 30 modules within the 6-month program period will allow you to fully engage in your learning journey. This includes engaging with the online courses and participating in related activities.
Coming March 1, 2024! The Standard Program will be available free to all Oregon licensed nurses and includes 30 courses tailored for community-based care nursing. Participants will be able to choose any number of these courses to meet their learning needs. Completion of all 30 courses will earn a certificate, recognizing your work and understanding of community-based care.
The Standard Program will offer online course modules only. For those interested in further opportunities including mentorship and discussion/community with other nurses, please apply to the NurseLearn Enhanced Program. The Enhanced Program builds on the Standard Program, adding layers of engagement and personal guidance for a more collaborative learning experience.
