Can I use my specialty nursing certification to fulfill the continuing education requirements to renew my license?


A nurse who is certified by a health care specialty program accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies or the Accreditation Board for Specialty Nursing Certification is exempt from continuing education requirements.

Please note: The CE exemption based on certification does not apply to the 3 hour Safely Prescribing Controlled Substances course requirement or the 2 hour Human Trafficking course requirement.
