Ceu

  1. Is it possible to get CEUs online? I've never renewed my license but I believe in DE I have to have a certain amount of CEUs to renew. I've found a few websites but I don't want to get ripped off or anything.

    Can anyone fill me in?

    Oh, found this article:

    http://findarticles.com/p/articles/m..._9/ai_92631465

    MedscapeNurses is part of eMedicine. The article is 5 years old, so to be safe I'd still check with your state Board to make sure they accept the CEs from the site.
