What Are Ohio's Nursing CE Requirements for LPNs?
Ohio LPNs: It's time to renew your license. The LPN renewal period opens on July 1, 2018 and extends through October 31, 2018. It is estimated that over 55,000 LPN licenses will renew from July 1, 2018 through October 31, 2018 so the Board of Nursing is encouraging LPNs to complete their CE requirements and to renew their license before September 15, 2018. Starting September 16, all LPNs will have have to pay a late processing renewal fee of $65 plus an additional $50 fee for late filers. All of these fees will add up to a total late renewal fee of $115 so make sure that you complete your CE requirements so you can renew early and avoid any trouble.
As a LPN in Ohio, you are required to complete 24 CE hours every two years. One CE hour must be related to the Ohio Nurse Practice Act and the rules of the Ohio Board of Nursing (Category A).
The remaining CE hours can be taken in any course that you feel will benefit your career and education.
