Welcome to NerdNurse (formerly CareTrack Resources)

NerdNurse publishes inexpensive training modules for those who work with the elderly and disabled in any setting: home health care, hospice, assisted living, memory care, personal care, rehabilitation facilities, nursing homes, group homes, and other types of long-term care. Our training modules are written at or below the 9th-grade reading level, so that any working adult can understand and complete them successfully. The materials contain whimsical, colorful illustrations that help learners remember and enjoy the content. 

The NerdNurse modules are designed to help caregiving agencies and facilities in these ways:

  1. Meet the requirement for 12 hours of annual training for aides and attendants in Medicare-certified organizations.
  2. Meet other regulatory requirements for regular in-service trainings.
  3. Educate this important workforce to provide high-quality care.
  4. Provide continuing education for personal care attendants, certified nurse's aides, patient care technicians, medication assistants, and other frontline healthcare roles.

For less than $120, you can purchase training for every worker in your ENTIRE FACILITY OR AGENCY for ONE FULL YEAR.

How It Works

Each training module requires approximately one hour to complete. The modules can be used by leaders in a group setting or by individuals for self-study. Both methods work equally well. 

Every module contains:

  1. A Lesson Plan to guide the training
  2. A Learner's Guide with the training content
  3. An activity to complete
  4. A test
  5. A Certificate of Completion
  6. Test answers

The modules are deliberately low-tech, using paper to deliver the training, because we have learned from experience that many workers providing care for the elderly and disabled do not have a lot of readily available technology.

Download our free in-service module by clicking on the Free Module tab or by going to the Training Modules tab and looking for the module titled "Infection Control," which is offered for no cost.

NEW: Spanish translations are now available for many titles. Select "Spanish Versions" to see and order Spanish translations of NerdNurse modules.

How to Purchase

NerdNurse training modules can be purchased individually. When you purchase a module, you receive the rights to print it and use it as often as desired, for as many people and events as you wish, and for as long as needed, within the purchasing facility or agency. The material is copyrighted and may not be shared outside the purchasing facility or agency. If licenses are desired for multiple facilities or agencies within the same company, enterprise licenses are available at a discount by contacting info@nerdnurse.com.

Individual modules cost $12. When you purchase, you will be directed to PayPal to complete the process (you can use a credit card through PayPal). After payment, you will receive a link by email to download the module to your computer--be sure to check your spam folder if the email doesn't come through right away.

When you purchase 10 or more modules at one time, you will receive a 10% discount on your order.  In other words, if you buy 10 modules, one of them will be free--10 modules for the price of 9, with 10% off every additional module.
