It is time to renew my CPN certification which I've had for I think 4 years. I've been in grad school for public health this year and the nursing for I've done hasn't been pediatric related. Because of this, I don't qualify for work related hours or academic credit since it's not a nursing degree. I planned to just do several CE credits but unfortunately it looks like the bundles on their website no longer pertain to CPN recert. What do I do? Does anyone know where to get CE online? I don't mind paying for them as long as its applicable and accredited. I really don't want to lose my certification as I'm planning on going back to pediatrics after graduation.

Hi - Have you explored the other (complimentary) modules we offer on the PNCB website? We also post links to other respected CE sources that are no-cost. I don't think I can post the links directly in my comment here, but can you reach out to us at recert@pncb.org so we can help you identify CE and/or discuss all accepted activity options you can use for recertification so you can maintain your CPN certification? Thank you!

I was in a pinch to finish up my CE requirement last year as well.  I purchased the unlimited CE package from nurse.com.  There were a lot of pediatric options and actually found some interesting ones that I wouldn't have found myself.  They were all accredited.  I think it was around $40 but it was worth the money to me to not have to go looking around for free ones.
