How soon do I get CEUs with a new license?

  1. Hello!
    I obtained my RN license this month and have heard all throughout nursing school about CEUs, but am wondering when I need to start getting them?! I know my license renewal date is in about a year. Can anyone give me any information or at least point me in the right direction of where to seek info?
    Thank you!!

    Call your Board and inquire if the info was not provided with the license. Some states do not require CEUs for the first renewal period. CEUs are easily obtainable from online sources within a couple of hours so don't stress out over it.
