Audio Digest is what I use + conferences.
Don't wait till the last minute
Specializes in Outpatient Psychiatry.
Get a NEJM journal watch subscription and get ten units included in the cost. Each unit is obtained by answering four multiple choice questions. You can also buy more units. Conferences are very low yield in units.

I do conferences as much to take a mini-vaca with tax write off and network with physicians, note I don't attend NP conferences unless I'm presenting. The average for a 3 day conference has been around 25 CEUs which I think is decent and at renewal I have way more than required by my state's BON. For my learning style the knowledge I get and retain is higher yield than doing independent activities on line or in a magazine.
What is a good pace for CME? One conference or more per year? I have 5k per CY for CME so I am not sure how far that will stretch.
Actually, forget this. I'm saddened to report that I got a letter today from NEJM stating they're doing away with Journal Watch Online CME. UGH!
The three (big sample, eh?) that I've been to have been for NPs with a yield of maybe 5 units, plus I have to drive from God's country down to the ghetto capital.
5k/yr will stretch A LONG WAY.
I have 1500 and was happy to have that considering the initial offer was 500, lol. I haven't used it near as much as I'd want because family commitments have precluded my distant travel. In the future, watch out! PsychGuy will be there, and I'll wear my nice pants too.

Dude I will hook you up with my glitz and glamour conference list for good times, excellent eats and 20+ CEUs. Looking forward to eventually seeing those nice pants.
AANP, ENA, NTI are all good yield for CME

Thanks for the warning. I expect you'd look like your avatar, but you just changed it! (I was partial to Mr. Wilder as Young Dr. Frankenstein).
Inquiring minds want to know... but I'm not in psych, so maybe your venues aren't for me?
