How do I know how many CE hour I have learned?


Is anybody know where I can find how many CE hours I have learned for my RN license in NJ?

Do you mean how many you’ve earned since renewal/issue or how many you need to have for your renewal?

If you’re looking for how many you’ve already earned, you’ll need your certificates from the provider. Good idea to have these saved in case of an audit. 

If you’re looking for how many you need to complete for renewal, that info should be found on the NJ BON website.

I use a spreadsheet to keep track as I complete them.

If you're keeping track, make sure you remember that some states have individualized requirements like organ donation or child abuse reporting. That is YOUR responsibility to know to be compliant.

Each state has its own time window and number of hrs/units required.  Also, not all providers are RECOGNIZED by ALL states. So what's OK in NJ, might not count in Ohio. Again, YOUR responsibility to know.

It's a good idea to be safe and keep records/copies of your CEUs yourself. Some providers will open an account for you and maintain records, but if they go out of business .... you're SOL.

And yes, people have been audited or misplace their records. YOUR JOB.

thanks. I guess need to record how many hours I already learned, and save all the certificates.

Some sites such as Medscape have a "tracker" as part of your account.
