ECCO is a new approach to remote training, featuring up-to-date, interactive and evidence-based education that easily blends into your existing orientation plans.
AACN’s 24/7 customer support, comprehensive reports and progress tracking tools make implementation straightforward.
The ECCO Difference
Safe Patient Care
ECCO’s modular design lets you tailor the course to your unit or individual nurse’s needs. Continuing education hours are provided at the assignment level to provide flexibility and support for your nurses’ training.
Didactic content is taught through real-life patient scenarios. This results in more time for blended learning application and simulation opportunities, which helps support the delivery of safe patient care.
ECCO's real-life patient scenarios mimic the practice environment, while knowledge check questions tests with feedback enhance retention of content.
ECCO's content was peer-reviewed by over 300 progressive and critical care nursing experts, ensuring proven education that easily blends into orientation plans and your nurses’ practice.
We use ECCO because we are a small regional facility with a small ICU patient population, without a clinical nurse specialist, and with limited learning opportunities for orienting nurses for SCU and cross training our med-surg staff to the SCU.Sara Morris, Allina Health System
If all nursing schools had this approach to learning, we would all be very prepared after school.Godfred Essim, NYU Langone Hospital
