How do I get my CEs?

First, you will need to create an account. This will allow you to save your progress as you review courses.

Simply choose your state and click on “Start Earning my CEUS.” Once you have created a free account, you can take all of our courses and assessments. Make sure that you are logged in to save your progress as you take the course and the assessment.

After you have successfully answered at least 70% of the questions correctly and completed the assessment, a certificate will generate to your account. You can then click on the Certificates tab at the upper right hand corner of your browser to see a list of your completed certificates. Make sure that you fill out your full name and license number in the personal information field as this will appear on your certificate.

How do I create a free account?

Once you are on the home page, simply choose your state and click on “Start Earning my CEUS.” You can create an account with your email address or a Facebook/Google page.

Are these courses certified?

Yes, you will earn credits that are accredited by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).

Is earning my certificate really supposed to be this fast and easy?

Yes! We were created to make your credentialing process as easy as possible. We know you have busy lives and we wanted to make earning your CEs as simple as possible so you can continue to enjoy the things that you love.

I’m a nurse and I need to maintain my license for more than one state. Can I do that with NursingCE.com?

Yes! We are multi-state certified by the ANCC, so your certificates will be valid in multiple states.

How do I generate a certificate for more than one state?

After completing your course assessment, click on the "Certificates" tab. From there, please enter your license number for your first state license and save the changes. You can now download your certificate for the first state. After you have downloaded and saved/printed the certificate for your first state, please return to "Certificates" tab and update the license number for your second state license and save the changes. You can now download the certificate for your second state. Repeat this process for each of your certificates.

Do you report the CEs to my BON?

No, you will need to report your CEs yourself. After you have successfully completed a course assessment, a certificate will be issued to your account that you can download, print and send to your BON.

How long will it take to get my certificate?

Your certificate will automatically be generated once you successfully complete a course assessment.

Can I have a hard copy of my certificate?

Absolutely. After you have successfully completed the course assessment, we recommend that you print the certificate after you download it.

What if I lose the hard copy of my certificate?

Not to worry. Your certificates are saved in your account. If you ever lose the printed hard copy, simply log into your account and reprint the certificate.

Are you adding more courses?

Yes, we are adding more courses soon. If there is a specific course you would like to see, please send us an email to [email protected].

Is there an app?

Not yet. For now, you can complete courses and assessments on any device with an Internet connection.

Why do I need to enter the last 4 digits of my social security number?

This field is only required for Pennsylvania nurses. The Department of State in Pennsylvania requires that we report the last 4 digits of our customer's social security number so the hours can be accredited towards license renewal. If you are not from Pennsylvania, you do not have to enter that information. 

Can I get a refund?

If you’ve generated and downloaded your certificate, we cannot offer you a refund. If you have not generated a certificate, we can refund you.
