Offer CE Approval

Are you looking to offer CE credit for a program or event you’re hosting? AANN approves individual educational activities for nursing contact hours.

The American Association of Neuroscience Nurses is accredited as an approver of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.

Note: AANN does not approve organizations as providers of continuing nursing education. Retroactive approval is not available.

Attention Applicants: The application for approval of a single activity that is larger than 3 hours only needs to include documentation for 3 hours. However, documentation for the complete activity must be kept on file and must be accessible. If AANN requests information for the full activity, the applicant must be able to provide it. For example, if you are applying for a program that is 10 hours, you only need to submit documentation for 3 of those 10 hours; however, you must still provide a Biographical Data/COI form for each Planning Committee member, as well as each Presenter/Faculty/Author/ Content Reviewer for all sessions that are offered.
