NP license renewal

Posted
IMNP IMNP (New) New

Hey all,

I'm up to renew my AGACNP license in the next year with the ANCC. We've had uptodate the last few years and I do use it a lot. They allow you to redeem CE's. My hospital system is dropping the subscription so I have to redeem them. I've Google searched it and I see some physicians using them does anyone have any experience using it for uptodate credits for NP license renewal? Thanks.

I’ve never used it for CME, but my PA-C colleagues have, and they tell me that it is considered Category II CME for them, rather than Category I. I was under the impression that most State nursing boards and certification agencies may limit the number (or deny altogether) the number of Cat. II CME that can be used - I would check directly with your State Board of Nursing and your National Certification body, since specific requirements can vary by state.

UpToDate is actually category I for PAs

NPs can use them as well per their website

American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP)

UpToDate is approved as a provider of nurse practitioner continuing education by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners: AANP Provider Number: 051212. This activity was planned in accordance with AANP Accreditation Standards and Policies.

For each hour of participation with the program, NPs can claim 1.0 contact hour. UpToDate automatically tracks the time you spend using the service.

My error, sorry. I stand corrected. As I said, I have not used it for CME, but was only going by what my PA-C friends had said.

Thanks!

I just found out from my employer that I can use my CE allowance to pay for uptodate...
