National Association of School Nurses is accredited with distinction as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.

Collaborative Partnership in Continuing Education with NASN

In addition to NASN as sole developer and provider of continuing education in live and enduring formats for school nurses, NASN also partners with other organizations on educational activities that optimize the health of students and advances the practice of school nursing.  The partnering organization may not be a commercial interest or sponsor.  Contact NASN today to discuss the collaborative partnership process.  

NASN is not an approver organization, so it cannot provide continuing education contact hours to programs that have already been developed. If you are seeking approval for a completed program, visit the ANCC website for approver organizations in your area.

State Continuing Education Information

California: NASN is approved by the California Board of Registered Nursing: Provider No. CEP 12292

Nurses licensed in other states, who have concerns about recognition by their state of NASN provided CNE contact hours, are encouraged to, first, direct any questions to the authoritative body in that state.

Continuing Education Records

NASN keeps Continuing Education records for 6 years. If your state requires you to keep your records longer than 6 years, it is the responsibility of the individual to keep those records.

Continuing Nursing Education: When CNE is offered with an NASN program, attendees paying the appropriate registration fee will receive CNE contact hours for the program attended and evaluated within the 90-day allotted window. Attendees must stay for the entire program, no partial credit. Attendees have 90 days to complete evaluations to receive CNE credit for the program. Requests for an extension on the 90-day CNE deadline must be submitted in writing, mailed to the NASN office, and include a $60.00 processing fee payment. Extensions will not be granted for programs hosted or presented more than 12 months prior to the extension request.  View or print the request for extension form
