Subscriptions | Self-Study

Our subscriptions are a curated version of our Canadian Culture and Communication for Nurses (CCCN) modules. We removed all the extras from our usual programming (i.e, instructor, goal-setting and assessment tasks, and discussion board). This means you can benefit from our basic content through self-study at a more affordable price!

Note: If you want a private online coach to guide you through each week with a focus on your speaking skills, you can add it on at check out.
