Can CEUs carry over?Register Today!
- by Mrs. SnowStormRN May 13, '11Hi, I currently live in a state where CEUs are not required to maintain a license. I am still acquiring them, regardless of this fact. We are military, so I was wondering if we move will the CEUs be transferrable to my new state? Does it have to be in the compact in order to transfer? Thanks in advance!

I double checked with my state for instance also if Medscape was acceptable (yes) as I can do them as well as Medpage for free.

the only one it specifies that allows carry over is NJ
- May 13, '11 by classicdameI do not understand how a state can hold you responsible for CNE if you have been working in a state for which it is not required. I would think the clock would start from the time you are licensed in the state requiring CNE.
In Texas the CNE's must be renewed every 2 years and must reflect your area of practice. When I moved here from a non-compact state I was not required to have recent CNE until 2 years later. That was 15 years ago, and things change with time of courseLast edit by classicdame on May 13, '11 : Reason: grammar

It does Classic, from the initial date of licensure for that state the clock starts ticking. Ususally what you did before that clock started does not count. Also Medscapes state by state info was incorrect for my state. To be sure shoot off an email to your BON.
