I was wondering what the difference is between CEU's (Continuing Education Units) and CNE's (Continuing Nursing Education Credit)...
My continuing education credits have always been called CEU's.
Could CNE's be a Canadian or some other country's term for what we consider CEU's?
The way I found the CNE term was while surfing the net tonight I went to the CDC website and found they offer some free continuing education programs. When applying for the credit you must check a box describing the type of credit you want.
(The CME's are for physicians... I understand that.)
What was interesting is that the CNE's offered larger credits than the CEU's... for example the same course would offer "1.6 contact hours" for CNE's, yet would offer "0.1 hour CEU's".
Since I've always used CEU's I will check that box when applying for credit, but I was just wondering...
Does anyone know the difference between CNE's and CEU's?
Thanks for any information... I'm a curious kind of girl...
