The study assessed the impact of continuing medical education on job performance among nurses. A quantitative approach was used to explore nurses’ views with regards to continuing formal education. A sample size of eight (8) categories of nurses was adopted. The study was limited to various categories of practicing nurses. Inferential analysis was conducted to investigate contingency with educational status groups. The result shows that response to physiological effects (Cardiovascular diseases) was significantly related (Chi-Square=23.382, p —value=0.00) to health professionals’ educational status. Results indicated that more health professionals engaged in continuing medical education (CME) without official approval experienced cardiovascular diseases.
