Keeping Your License and Certification Current with RN.com


  • Print Page

Keeping up with state and national continuing education requirements is critical to RN.com. RN.com is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education though the American Nurses Credentialing Center. We are also an approved nursing continuing education provider for California, Florida and West Virginia. With these accreditations, courses on RN.com are accepted by all state boards across the country. No matter where you live or practice, you can be assured that our courses are accepted in your state. Additionally, for Florida nurses, we participate with CE Broker and submit our course completions on a weekly basis to the CE Broker so that they are recorded in your CE record with the Board of Nursing.

RN.com’s ANCC accreditation adds additional value to our members. If you are certified in your specialty, it is likely that your certification renewal has a continuing education option. If that is the case, check with your certifying agency to determine if ANCC accredited activities are accepted. Through our research we have found that most do.

Certifications through the ANA, the AACN Certification Corporation (CCRN, PCCN) , the Competency and Credentialing Institute (for CNOR/CRNFA), Emergency Nurses Association (ENA), National Certification Board for Diabetes Educators, National Certification Corporation and the Oncology Nursing Certification Corporation all accept ANCC accredited courses for the CE portion of the certification renewal process.

Lastly, there are a number of states that have specific course requirements for licensing in that state. RN.com strives to provide all those “required” courses. You will find a “State Required” course section on the RN.com course list. If you know of additional courses that are needed for state requirements or additional certification information that we should be aware of, please contact us at info@rn.com. We welcome your questions and input.
