NPG QBoost Question Banks

Are you interested in a way to easily and actively engage in continuing education? If so, ASRM QBoost is a platform that tests your knowledge of REI theory and standards of care via ASRM documents. As busy nurses, we often don’t have time for courses or journal club. By signing up for QBoost, you will get two questions at a time delivered to your phone or mobile device, so you can engage whenever you’d like. Signing up for QBoost is easy, but you need to be an ASRM member (sign up here).

Also, if you want to deepen your knowledge further (and develop research and question-writing skills) sign up to be a QBoost question writer or reviewer. It’s a great way to meet other nurses who want to increase their knowledge, confidence and are committed to optimizing patient care.

Thank you to:
