New Continuing Education Rules
Effective February 1, 2002!New Continuing Education Rules Effective February 1, 2002!
The new rule eliminates the requirement for “patient care” specific continuing education. Previously, a minimum of the 4.5 CEUs (45 contact hours) out of the required 6.0 CEUs (60 contact hours) to be reported every three years were required to be in patient care related programs. However, starting February 1, 2002 this will no longer be a requirement. The requirement for a minimum of 0.3 CEUs (three contact hours) of the 6.0 CEUs in Board approved jurisprudence remains, however, the remaining 5.7 CEUs (57 contact hours) of continuing education would be your choice of topics.
