Continuing Education

  1. 0 This is my first time renewing my LVN license but I have some questions that maybe some of you have the answers to.

    I'm at the end of an LVN-BSN program at National University and hope that my school counts for CEU's but I don't know how much each class is worth or if it counts. I looked on the BVNPT website and looks like psych, med surg II and pharmacology count, but how? Does 1 hour = 1.0 credit?

    BVNPT says you need 30 hours of CE w/in 2 yrs. Does that mean I only need 30 hours or 30 credits. If I'm not mistaken they are not the same thing.

    I emailed the board and am waiting for a reply. I've also called but the voicemail says the number is not active due to high volume and than automatically hangs up.. Great...

    Im pretty sure you dont need CEU's for your FIRST renewal, just pay the fees...

    So_Ca_LVN was right, I was told i do not need CEU's for first time renewal when i took my IV therapy and blood withdrawal class.

    Sorry guys, guess I should have clarified that, but this is my first time renewing and needing 30 credits.
