    Ceu's are a national requirement for re-registration in the UK. If nothing else, it gives the nurse a lever to get a less enlightened manager to release you for updating yourself. Many did not, but the possibility of "losing" a RN concentrates the mind.

    "In citing his reasons for seeking the opt-out, Johanns said in the news release that "patients' health is protected because CRNAs have the education and training that enable them to provide quality services."

    For those of you that think CE's should not be mandatory...This article talks about CRNA's being able to practice independently. A quote from the article shows how many hours they must complete in order to practice.

    So if a CRNA has to have mandatory CE to practice what makes the rest of us immune?
