Collaboration with 4MedPlus Enables USMLE Students Access to Six Bundled Certificate Courses and Becker’s New GuideRN Self Study Preps Nursing Students for the NCLEX-RN®

Becker Professional Education, a global leader in professional education and part of Adtalem Global Education, announced two major new initiatives to expand beyond the current USMLEpreparation course. Becker is collaborating with 4MedPlus to ensure that its students have easy access via a single tool to key certifications needed prior to the start of their medical programs. In addition, Becker is also adding a GuideRN Self Study to prep nursing students for the NCLEX-RN - the standardized exam required to become a board certified nurse.

New 4MedPlus Compliance iBookPlus+ Offering

The 4MedPlus Compliance iBookPlus+ is an online course tool which allows practitioners, employers, educators and organizations to deliver access to required and recommended compliance learning for staff, students and members with a single click. Compatible with PC, MAC/iPad and Android on all browsers, the iBookPlus+ features an online interactive educational hub where students can quickly establish proficiency in regulatory, compliance and security topics in healthcare all at once.

The six certificates of proficiency accessed by Becker students in the compliance iBookPlus+ include:

  • Understanding HIPAA for the Workforce Professional
  • NYS Mandated Infection Control and Barrier Protection
  • Bloodborne Pathogens Protection
  • Needlesticks and Sharps Safety
  • OSHA/PPE Basics for Healthcare Workers (OSHA/PPE)
  • Comprehensive Tuberculosis Prevention (TB)

Completion of each course in the bundle achieves a 4MedApproved Certificate of Proficiency with Nursing CEU's, Physician CME and College Credit available. The iBookPlus+ tool also provides access to hundreds of individual modules and numerous additional courses for customized compliance. All PDF certificates are dispatched upon iBookPlus+ completion to students as well as to the administrator or distribution list associated with the account and a comprehensive admin panel is included which allows for monitoring and management of student progress.

Becker Launches New GuideRN, Self-Paced Learning Program, to Prep Nursing Students for NCLEX-RN

Becker Professional Education is launching a new GuideRN Self Study program to help nursing students prepare for their NCLEX test required to become a board certified nurse. Featuring 21 core subject topics, the GuideRN self study includes a full curriculum of nursing subjects to help students prepare for the NCLEX, including Nursing Sciences, Fundamental Skills, Professional Standards, and Examination Preparation.

In addition, the GuideRN tool offers more than 30 hours of modular online content grounded in the fundamentals of medicine, as well as full-color illustrations, photos and embedded animations to help bring medical topics to life and illustrate the processes of the human body. Also, the end of each chapter includes practice questions to enhance the understanding of specific nursing subjects and the user has the option to add more than 2,000 UWorld Question Bank questions providing detailed explanations that are written to simulate the NCLEX exam.

“Through our partnership with 4MedsPlus and our new GuideRN Self Study program, we are transforming the traditional learning process within key areas of medical study to provide interactive, advanced exam prep solutions that are easily accessible across devices,” stated David Bartholomew, Vice President, Healthcare at Becker Professional Education. “Becker’s focused growth plan will continue to provide our students with resources tailored for comprehensive understanding and access to the key information needed to succeed in a variety of areas of medical exam and certification prep.”

Becker Professional Education has helped nearly half a million people prepare to succeed on professional exams including the USMLE and now in both medical certifications and NCLEX. To learn more about Becker Professional Education, visit www.becker.com.
