Q: What’s the difference between the Bathing without a Battle online training and the DVD? 

A: The content of the online training and the DVD is similar.  Main differences are:

  • The online training presents the material in greater depth.  The DVD is condensed (50 minutes) whereas the online training takes 2-2.5 hours.
  • The online training is interactive, whereas the DVD is presented as a lecture/demonstration.
  • The online training is designed for self-study and can be taken over many days; the DVD is designed for in-service training to groups.
  • The online training program is free and provides continuing education credits; the DVD must be purchased and provides instructions to help an organization provide credit but does not itself provide credits.

Q: When I click on the “Continuing Education Credits” button in the online training program, I’m not taken to the quiz and survey. Why? 

A: You must completely view all the required training modules before the “Continuing Education Credits” button becomes active. The required modules depend on how you have registered.

If you’ve registered as a nurse, you’ll need to view the following modules before the button becomes active: introduction, showering, tub bathing, in-room bathing, hair washing, bathing products and implementation. 

If you’ve registered as a nursing assistant, you’ll need to view the following modules before the button becomes active: introduction, showering, tub bathing, in-room bathing and hair washing. 

If you’ve completed the required modules and still cannot access the quiz and survey through the “Continuing Education Credits” button, please contact us at: info@bathingwithoutabattle.unc.edu.

Q: I’m a nursing assistant.  How can I get credits using the online program? 

A:  In North Carolina, nursing assistants must refer to their individual employers about contact hour credits. Outside of North Carolina, please check with your local nursing assistants’ regulating body.  Anyone registered as a nursing assistant can print a certificate of participation after completing the required modules.
