I would like some guidance from Staff Development folks. I teach a guided imagery group that is awarded CEU's to nursing staff at a local hospital. Can someone point me in the direction as to how I'd go about doing this myself, so that I can award these CEUs directly, and therefore offer it through my own office? I just don't know where to start! I live in MA.

You will need to talk with whoever it is that is providing your CEU's at the hospital. Ask them what their requirements would be to provide you with the CEU's at your other setting. CEU's are usually obtained through a local organization (hospital, etc.) that has been approved to review your class and approve it for the CEU's. That organization, in turn, has to meet certain requirements of the larger group that actually endorses the CEU's and authorized that local organization to review your class and approve it. So ... go to that local organization (probably the hospital staff development department) and ask them what the procedure would be.

I'm not totally sure, but in California, you go thru the BORN. I remember reading something about that on the website. Good Luck to you.

Take a look at www.nationalAHEC.org
My understanding is that there is an application process for each training session. There is a fee (per certificate/student) that you would pass on to the attendees (they are used to this)...you as the instructor handles the paperwork and the certificates are mailed 4-6 weeks after the event.
If using AHEC the fee for CEs is writen seperately to AHEC.
You fill out an application for the actual class: there has to be at least one objective, the CE hours are in specific increments (breaks and lunch time do not count), you provide a speaker bio and some other info I cannot remember off the top of my head.
Hope this helps
