Free online STNA courses on a variety of topics are available from Des Moines University, Johns Hopkins University and the University of Michigan. General nursing courses that cover the fundamentals of the profession can be taken on Study.com.
Most free online courses are intended to provide additional information for aspiring nurses or those who are already certified in nursing. They generally do not provide academic course credit and do not count toward the acquisition of a nursing certificate. However, current nurses who want to learn new skills or those considering becoming nurses who want to know more about the profession can benefit from these courses.
