I searched high and low for an answer, but I never really got a straight one, short of asking the Board of Nursing. Because in Nebraska I know you have to get something like 20hours of CE's and practice at least 200 hours per year. I'm not absolutely sure now...its been such a long time.

Nonetheless, I also agree that it is dangerous for nearly half of the States not to require these CE's. Don't the institutions make you go to inservices and such? I can't stand that I have to do all of these classes and learn all of these things and not be able to get some kind of credit for them or "bank" them for required CE's by the state. It would be safer for all nurses and patients if these things were required by all states.
