Um dumb question maybe. . .but what happens to my CEU's? Does the state track them? Like, when I got my ACLS/BLS they asked for my license # and I earned some CEU's. Do they get tracked anywhere? How do I track them/prove I have done them? I am so confused by this. I have to renew my license April 2011 and I have no record of all the CEU's I have done in various places.

From what I understand it's based on merit. But if they choose to audit you, you better have proof you have the CEU's!

It is based on merit... so that in mind you need to keep a file with all your CEU's so that if the state ever comes asking after you checked that yes box saying you met the requirements, that you can prove it. Other than my CPR/ACLS...etc... I try to keep all my other CEU's with one place so that I can always access my account and get all the information I need.:nurse:

first off, they are contact hours for nurses. Not CEU's. You should keep your certificates in case you are audited. If a question arises, the BON can request confirmation from the activity provider that you were present and earned the certificate. That is why you gave your license # to the provider. Best for you to just keep a file and plunk all the certs in one place "just in case".
