What Makes our Online Streaming Course
Even Better than a Live Streaming Course?

  • Structure: Our Online Streaming Courses feature a highly structured series of online lectures designed to help you prepare for national certification or to provide the most up-to-date continuing education. Based on Dr. Barkley’s many years of NP teaching experience, we strongly believe that offering the course in this focused manner will allow you to engage in a way that will lead to a maximal learning experience.
  • Schedule: Our regimented, intensive classroom day approach lays out a schedule of days to help you get the most out of your course. As opposed to live streaming courses, by presenting the material to you within scheduled course dates, we require that you set aside focused time - with no distractions - to review and teach you the content you need to pass your national certification exam or be educated for additional continuing education needs. Focus and continuity of attention are critical to your ability to comprehend and absorb the material.
  • Dynamic Practice Questions: To stimulate critical thinking, unique practice questions are dispersed throughout the entire course. These questions were tailored by expert faculty specifically for the Online Streaming Course. These are not available anywhere else - not for purchase, not in any test bank, and are only available for our Online Streaming Course customers.
  • Just the Essentials: The most important topics, concepts, and national guidelines are covered with the latest up-to-date material available. By distilling the essential information down for you, there is minimal “homework” after the course. We specialize in organizing a large body of knowledge to maximize comprehension and mastery of the material – which is key to your attaining national certification! We successfully assist thousands of students every year in passing national certification exams. You simply do not need an excessive number of contact hour credits to be successful!
  • Stellar Audiovisuals: Our Online Streaming Course includes comprehensive PowerPoint slides combined with audio recordings of our experienced faculty. Rather than a course with live faculty lecturers, these presentations have been refined and edited to guarantee high-quality, relevant content across the board. They also provide a consistent experience for every student who takes the course -- ensuring that no key content is omitted. Please note that there is no evidence in refereed literature that a live streamed course is any more successful at student learning outcomes than an online streamed course. Meaning, physically seeing a lecturer in the corner of recorded video does not objectively equate to improved success on national certification exams!
  • Extra Review Day! To ensure that students are able to properly focus their studies, we provide a full extra day to review any of the videos included in the Online Streaming Course. The complete playlist of videos from the Online Streaming Course will be available for the entire extra day. Our Review Day gives you the ability to revisit any material on your own schedule, giving you control over your course experience. These features are not available for ANY live course!
  • Extra Content: Each Online Streaming Course comes with supplemental materials to enhance your practice. These supplemental materials are available for 90 days following the course and can be viewed as often as you need.
  • Superior Academic Experience: Barkley & Associates is the only Nurse Practitioner continuing education company owned and operated by an educator with 26 years of full-time faculty experience who worked through academic ranks from Instructor to full Professor. Today, Dr. Barkley is Professor Emeritus of Nursing at the Patricia A. Chin School of Nursing, California State University, Los Angeles. In addition, he has presented international continuing education and certification review courses for nurse practitioners for over 22 years.
    Bringing unparalleled value to the content in our courses, Dr. Barkley has held numerous university leadership positions including Coordinator of the Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner Program, Director of Nurse Practitioner Programs, Director of the Doctor of Nursing Practice Program, and Director of the Graduate Programs. Obtaining a PhD in Nursing with subspecialties in Nursing Education and Nursing Education Administration, Dr. Barkley is by far the most uniquely qualified educator to design, coordinate, and deliver outstanding certification review/clinical update and continuing education courses for nurse practitioners.
