JNM's 1992 Home Study Program, which features “The Newborn” (March/April 1992 Supplement), will be valid for 0.9 CEUs through April 30, 1994. The fee is $100. Please note the following change: Payment and study materials should be sent directly to Mary Ann Shah, JNM Editor, 67 Tarry Hill Road, Tarrytown NY 10591.

JNM's 1993 Home Study Program, which features “Advanced Nurse-Midwifery Practice” (March/April 1993 Supplement), will be valid for 1.0 CEUs through April 30, 1995. The fee is $75 for submissions postmarked by August 31, 1993, and $100 thereafter. Please note the following corrections:

Page 7-S: Post-test question # 18 should be left blank on Answer Sheet.

Page 33-S: Column 1, paragraph 2, sentence # 8—“The Pipelle is gently introduced through the cervical os and up into the uterine fundus, much like the technique used to sound the uterus prior to intrauterine device insertion.”—should have been typeset two sentences earlier; it is hoped that no reader was confused by this misprint.

JNM's 1994 Home Study Program, which will feature “Obstetric Complications,” is well underway. It will be published as a Spring Supplement and will offer 1.0 CEUs to participants.

Preliminary preparations are beginning for the 1995 Home Study Program. It is anticipated that its focus will be “Comprehensive Health Assessment.” Please watch the Journal for further information and for “A Call for Abstracts.”
