Services About Us

The Klimes Institute was founded by Rudolf Klimes, PhD, MPH, and Anna Klimes, EdD, in 1992 in Orangevale, CA and reorganized in 2012 in Folsom, CA to provide 1) Continuing Education and other courses in the Sacramento, CA area, 2) books on education via the CEcourses Press, and 3) online accredited CE courses (CA CEP 16144, DC Board of Nursing 50-8516, and FLorida Board for Nursing 50-8516, Certified Nursing Assistants via CEBroker) in health, ethics and statistics to nurses, pharmacists, health professionals and other learners. The institute is a member of the Nursing Learning Network of Box 14585, Albany, NY, which collects and distributes all fees.

Dr. Klimes pioneered the offering of online contnuing education courses and was among the first few educators to do so for the State of California in the mid 1990s. At that time, the courses were offered through the registed nonprofit corporation called LearnWell Resources that Dr. Klimes had founded.

Cecourses may also be used for health education, patient education, prefessional education, prerequisite requirements and refresher studies. The same announced fees apply for all these courses also. CEcourses and their online tests may be updated anytime. You may not copy the online tests for any purpose.

The institute also provides the Ethics Center of Continuing Education, found at ethice.org and BibleD.org. At those sites, there are also some value-based online courses not found here.


he institute president, Rudolf Klimes, PhD (Indiana University), MPH (Johns Hopkins University), wrote 12 books available on amazon.com (Klimes /Bookstore), served as professor and president of three colleges, and founded LearnWell Resources. From an e-mail in 2014: “I’ve been surfing online more than 3 hours today, yet I never found any interesting article like yours. It is pretty worth enough for me. In my view, if all webmasters and bloggers made good content as you did, the internet will be a lot more useful than ever before.”

She is currently active in hospital administration, regulatory compliance, and infection control specialist.

    • Hi Linda. All classes that we offer are registered and approved by the California Board of Nursing. It is likely that the NAHQ will approve for CPHQ credit but you would need to email them directly with the course name to be sure. Hope this is helpful.
