According to the PA State Board of Nursing, Registered Nurses must complete 30 hours of Board approved continuing education (CE) during the time-period designated by the expiration date of the RN’s license. The CE content must meet the requirements delineated by the Board and administered by a Board-approved provider including accredited hospitals and health care facilities. The CE for license renewal in PA does not need to be accredited by the ANCC. For additional information visit https://www.dos.pa.gov.
It is the learner’s responsibility to verify the type of credit awarded by looking in the course brochure, flyer, advertisement, handout, etc. for the applicable accreditation statement.
