I am a "NEW" Grad FNP who will start my first career as FNP in ENT clinic. (I am in Texas!)
My company only provides $1000 for my CE which is low(I guess).
and also, I am not 100% for sure at this point of time but I do not think I will get any paid time off just for CE credits. So, I can only go to conference on weekends (at least I am off on every weekends).
I know that AANP and also each states have their own CE requirements and practice hours. I do not worry about practice hours since I am working full time. However, I wish to know how to fill out CE hours in order to maintain my license and AANP certification.
1. Please give me some suggestions for great FNP CE resources!
2. I will work in ENT clinic. If this case, do I only have to look for ENT specific topics in order to gain CE credits?
Or is it okay to take any kinds of CE topics such as derm, Diabetes, HTN etc.
3. Since I do not have any paid time off for CME, is it possible to fill out all CE credits through online resources instead of attending a conference?
If not then, I need to plan take off time from my personal leave or vacation time!
I really appreciate your time! Since I have no idea what should I have to do! In my practice, I am the only mid-level provider so I really need your advice!
