How many hours do I have to work to maintain my RN license?
- 0Mar 2, '10 by estippI am mostly at home with my kids now and working very infrequently. I would, however, like to keep my Illinois RN license current. Does anyone know how much I have to work?

I quit my full-time job (for many reasons) but mostly to stay home with my son. I went back to school - an RN to BSN accelerated program - one night a week. I didn't work for awhile.
When you are in school - you don't have to earn CEU's . . at least here in CA. So, my schooling qualified me to simply pay my license when it was due and I was fine.
Still an RN.

Try nursing spectrum or Advance for Nursing. They each offer a year free access for one set price.
Medscape also has free ones but they're only 0.25-.5 hours each
Or google for nursing conferences of your choice. Many offer CD packages with a bunch of earnable CEU for those who can't attend.
