B. The number of successfully completed contact hours required of each individual to demonstrate competency prior to reinstatement, reactivation or licensure by endorsement will be determined by the number of years that his or her license has been inactive or expired, as follows:

2-5 years expired/inactive Contact Hours: 80 Theory (including lab) and 80 Clinical
5-10 years expired/inactive Contact Hours: 120 Theory (including lab) and 120 Clinical
10 or more yrs. Expired/inactive Contact Hours: 120 Theory (including lab) and 120 Clinical; and possible additional hours as determined by the Board on a case-by-case basis.

C. If an applicant for reinstatement, reactivation or endorsement enrolls in a remedial or refresher course that is nontraditional, i.e., a course that does not include a faculty-supervised teaching/learning component in clinical settings taught concurrently with theoretical content, the required clinical hours must be procured in a manner consistent with the requirements of section 3.4 C of the Chapter I, Board of Nursing Rules.

3. Upon a petition by the licensee, and with due consideration of the need to protect the public, the Board may accept an alternative method for establishing competency.

Required Course For Mandatory Reporters Of Child And Adult Abuse

In 2001, the legislature passed a law mandating that licensing boards require a person who regularly examines, attends, counsels, or treats dependent adults or children in Iowa to accurately document compliance with training requirements on abuse education and/or dependent adult abuse, upon renewal of licensure.

This law is intended for the Licensed Practical Nurse(LPN), Registered Nurse (RN) and Advanced Registered Nurse Practitioner (ARNP) who regularly examines, attends, counsels or treats dependent adults or children in Iowa. The Mandatory Abuse Course taken to meet this requirement MUST be a course that has been approved by the Public Health Abuse Education Review Panel.

Any LPN, RN or ARNP who has frequent contact with children and/or dependent adults in the course of their work are considered to be mandatory reporters.

It is important to note that frequent contact does not necessarily mean “hands on nursing care”, but may simply mean observation of a child or dependent adult.

At the time of license renewal, the board of nursing requires that licensees have completed the abuse training within the previous 5 years.

Licensees selected for an audit of their continuing education must submit the course completion certificate or provide written documentation from their employer or supervisor attesting to the fact that the licensee does not attend, counsel or treat
children or dependent adults in Iowa.

Applicants for renewal of Prescriptive Authority shall submit proof of completion of the mandatory continuing education at the time of renewal.

Nurses seeking reinstatement, licensure by endorsement from another state, and examination candidates educated outside of Kentucky must earn three contact hours of KBN approved domestic violence CE within three years of licensure into Kentucky. This is a one-time requirement. Do not submit a copy to KBN unless requested to do so.

Any approved CE provider may offer the mandatory domestic violence course provided that, as a minimum, the model curriculum approved by the Domestic Violence Training Committee of the Governor's Commission on Domestic Violence is used.

In 2010, the General Assembly passed House Bill 285, sponsored by Rep. Addia Wuchner. This bill requires various groups to complete a course in Pediatric Abusive Head Trauma, also known as "Shaken Baby Syndrome." Those groups include:

  • Law enforcement students
  • Kentucky schools
  • Child protection staff
  • Inmates
  • Foster parents
  • Child care center employees and owners
  • Family child care providers
  • The HANDS program
  • Urgent care facility employees
  • Physician assistants
  • EMTs
  • First responders
  • Paramedics
  • Social workers
  • Nurses

The requirement for nurses is a one-time continuing education course of at least 1.5 hours covering the recognition and prevention of pediatric abusive head trauma as defined by the Act. Nurses licensed on or before July 15, 2010 must have earned the hours by December 31, 2013. Nurses licensed after that date have three years from the date of licensure to complete the course.

The course will be accepted if offered by a KBN-approved CE provider, a provider approved by one of the national nursing organizations recognized by KBN for CE, or a provider approved by another state board of nursing. It is not necessary for nurses to submit proof of completion unless audited.

Effective September 15, 2004 (and revised September 1, 2006), KBN approved the Kentucky Administrative Regulation, 201 KAR 20:490, governing licensed practical nurse intravenous (IV) therapy scope of practice. This regulation expands the scope of licensed practical nursing practice in the area of intravenous therapy practice.

The regulation identifies IV therapy functions that are recognized as being within the current scope of licensed practical nursing practice, as well as identifies functions that will be an expansion of that practice.

An LPN who has met the education and training requirements may perform select functions except as limited and under supervision as stated in the regulation. The regulation requires that the education and training of LPNs who perform IV therapy contain specific components. For questions concerning this regulation, contact the Nursing Practice Consultant, at 502-429-3307 or 800-305-2042, ext. 231 or send a message using the Practice Contact Form.


ARNP Special Requirement:
Advanced registered nurse practitioners (ARNPs) are required to earn five contact hours of approved CE in pharmacology each licensure period. These hours count as part of the CE requirement for the period in which they are earned.

Effective March 14, 2008, KBN Administrative Regulation 201 KAR 20:220 was amended to reflect the following information:

Pharmacology continuing education hours earned from a provider that is recognized by an organization from the list of approved National Nursing Organizations will be acceptable to meet the ARNP pharmacology requirement of KBN Administrative Regulation 201 KAR 20:215.

Sexual Assault Nurse Examiner Special Requirement:
Sexual Assault Nurse Examiners (SANE) credentialed nurses must earn five contact hours of approved sexual assault CE each licensure period. Forensic medicine or domestic violence CE will meet this requirement. These hours count as part of the CE requirement for the period in which they are earned.

Infection Control Requirement (RN, LPN)
All dentists, dental hygienists, licensed practical nurses, optometrists, podiatrists, and registered nurses must complete course work or training appropriate to their practice regarding infection control and barrier precautions, including engineering and work controls to prevent the transmission of human immunodeficiency virus (HIV) and the hepatitis b virus (HBV) in the course of professional practice, every four years according to Section 6505-b of the Education Law. You must attest to having completed this requirement to the State Education Department on your first licensure/registration application and at every subsequent registration.

Child Abuse Requirement (RN, LPN)
Effective January 1, 1989, Education Law required certain individuals, when applying initially for licensure or a limited permit to provide documentation of having completed two hours of coursework or training regarding the identification and reporting of child abuse and maltreatment. This requirement applies to: Chiropractors, Dental Hygienists, Dentists, Optometrists, Physicians, Podiatrists, Psychologists, and Registered Nurses. The Law also includes this training among the requirements for certification or licensure of school administrators/supervisors, school service personnel, and classroom school teachers. All persons applying for a provisional or permanent certificate or license valid for administrative or supervisory service, school service, or classroom teaching service must have completed the two hours of coursework or training.


Since September 1, 1990, programs registered by NYS that lead to licensure or certification in one of the above areas affected by the legislation have been required to include training in the identification and reporting of child abuse and maltreatment. Students graduating from such programs on or after September 1, 1990 are not required to take additional training and are not required to receive a Certification form and submit documentation. However, medical residency programs, which are taken after receiving licensure, are not required to include such training. Therefore, training received during residency does not satisfy the NYS training requirement. An individual who completes an out-of-state medical program unregistered by NYS who then receives training in a NYS residency program has not met the training requirement and must take additional training from an approved provider.

Effective September 1, 2004, this requirement also applies to Licensed Clinical Social Workers and Licensed Master Social Workers. Individuals in these professions, when applying initially for licensure or a limited permit, or for the renewal of a New York State license or registration, must provide documentation of having completed the coursework or training through a Department-approved course. *

Moreover, effective January 1, 2005, this requirement applies to Mental Health Counselors, Marriage and Family Therapists, Creative Arts Therapists, and Psychoanalysts. As of that date, individuals in these professions, when applying initially for licensure or a limited permit must provide documentation of having completed the coursework or training through a Department-approved course.*

*Programs registered by NYS that lead to licensure in these professions now are required to include training in the identification and reporting of child abuse and maltreatment. Students graduating from such programs on or after the effective dates are not required to take additional training and are not required to receive a Certificate form or submit documentation.

Pain Management CE Requirement

The seven-hour Pain Management CE Requirment is required for all physicians, physician assistants, acupuncturists, nurses, nurse practitioners, podiatrists, chiropractors, naturopaths, psychologists and other health professionals.

Seven hours of pain management-related CE. One hour must be a course to be provided by the Oregon Pain Management Commission (click here to go to the Pain Commission CE course).

The remaining six hours can be your choice of pain management topics.

You should complete the requirement within 24 months of your first renewal after the bill’s implementation date of 1-1-06. So, if your first renewal after implementation was on 9-2-07, you have until 9-2-09 to obtain your CE.

Most Oregon nursing students receive pain management education in school, which satisfies the requirement. Check with your nursing program director for verification.

 Requirements

The first group of RNs that will verify they have completed the 30 hours of Board approved CE are those RNs with an expiration date of October 31, 2010.

Follow these steps:
Check the expiration date on your current license. Then find the date in the table when your CE is due.

  1. Look for CE offerings from Board-approved providers (*) occurring in the time frames indicted inthe table below for your expiration date.
    For example: If your license will expire on April 30, 2011 you will need to complete 30 hours of Board approved CE between May 1, 2009 through April 30, 2011.
     
    If your expiration date on your
    RN license is:
    You must complete 30 hours of Board
    approved CE from:
    October 31, 2010 11/1/08 through 10/31/10
    April 30, 2011 5/1/09 through 4/30/11
    October 31, 2011 11/1/09 through 10/31/11
    April 30, 2012 5/1/10 through 4/30/12

     

  2. Keep all certificates for the CE you have completed for at least 5 years. Make sure that each of the certificates has the required information – your name, the course title, the number of CE hours awarded, the date(s) of the activity, the provider(s) of the activity and the name of the organization which approved the activity. In lieu of CE certificates it is acceptable for your employer to use an electronic database (log) to track your CE hours. The information that would normally be found on a certificate needs to be on the database and must be a log of only your CE hours. The log of your CE hours needs to be in a format that can be sent to the board if you are audited.
  3. When it comes time to renew your license, answer the renewal question “YES or “NO” about completion of the required 30 hours CE. This can be done on either the paper or the electronic format for license renewal.
  4. DO NOT submit your CE certificates at the time of license renewal. If you are randomly selected for audit, instructions will be provided to you at that time.

NOTE: You are not required to keep CE activity information, such as a syllabus or outline, however this information may be requested at the time of audit if information on the CE certificate is incomplete.

Prescriptive Authority Approval

The CRNP with prescriptive authority is required to have a minimum of 16 of the 30 hours of board approved continuing education in pharmacology.

Q: What are my options to document competency to renew my license?
There are four options available in the Nurse Practice Act to document continued competency
for renewal; however, not all options may be available for each nurse or in every employment/
practice setting. Prior to choosing a continued competency option, it is wise to verify that
documentation of the option is available for you. Prior to renewing your nursing license in 2014,
one of these competency options must be completed and documented between May 1, 2012
and April 30, 2014. The competency requirement for licensure can be found in Section 40-33-40
of the Nurse Practice Act - Chapter 33 under Laws/Policies as well as on the home page of the
Board’s website. Further explanation of the competency options can be found in the
Competency Requirement Criteria also located on the Board of Nursing website home page.
This document includes lists of accepted continuing education approvers/ providers, certifying
bodies and explanation of the completion of an academic program of study.
1) Completion of 30 contact hours from a continuing education provider recognized by
the Board. In 2005, a decision was made to accept completion of academic courses with
a NUR (or NSG, Nursing, etc.) prefix for this option as long as a minimum grade of C is
attained in an undergraduate course and a grade of B is attained in a graduate course.
(Note: one semester hour =15 contact hours / 1 academic quarter hour = 12.5 contact
hours); OR
2) Maintenance of certification or re-certification by a national certifying body
recognized by the Board; OR
3) Completion of an academic program of study in nursing or a related field
recognized by the Board; OR
4) Verification of competency and number of hours practiced as evidenced by
employer certification on a form approved by the Board. Please verify with your
employer that they can / will sign this form before choosing this option as your continued
competency demonstration. There are no set number of hours you must practice nursing
to use this option; however, you must practice enough hours that your employer can/ will
sign the Employer Certification form. If your employer is unable to sign this form, you must
choose one of the other options. This Employer Certification form is available on the Board
of Nursing website homepage.
You are not required to send competency documentation to the Board with your renewal. The
Board conducts random continued competency audits throughout the year. Nurses chosen for
audit will be sent a letter requesting submission of continued competency documentation within
five business days of the request pursuant to §40-33-40(D) of the Nurse Practice Act.

 Requirements Q.Does South Dakota require continuing education units to renew a nursing license?

If the nurse cannot provide such verification, an RN or LPN Refresher Course consisting of an 80-hour self-study theoretical portion and 80 hours of supervised clinical practice which meets Board of Nursing standards must be completed. A Limited License must be obtained by all students enrolled in a refresher course prior to the start of clinical practice experience. Upon successful completion of the course and payment of required fees, the nursing license may be renewed or reactivated.

All nurses with an active Texas license are required to demonstrate continuing competency for relicensure. The mission of the Board of Nursing (BON) is to protect and promote the welfare of the people of Texas by ensuring that each person holding a license as a nurse in the State of Texas is competent to practice safely. In 1991, rules were adopted requiring nurses to complete 20 contact hours of continuing education (CE) every two years for relicensure. CE in nursing is defined as programs beyond the basic preparation that are designed to promote and enrich knowledge, improve skills, and develop attitudes for the enhancement of nursing practice, thus improving health care to the public. In 2009, rules were adopted to allow nurses to demonstrate competency through achievement of an approved national nursing certification in the nurse's area of practice or completing 20 contact hours. Each nurse reactivating an inactive or delinquent license must also submit verification of 20 contact hours completed in the two years prior to reactivation, or have a current approved national nursing certification.

Forensic Evidence Collection CE
Effective September 1, 2005, the NPA was amended, adding the CE requirement, Forensic Evidence Collection in Continuing Education. This targeted CE requirement applies to all nurses practicing in emergency department (ED) settings as either their home unit, floating, contracted, or other duties that involve functioning in an ED setting or role. This is a one-time requirement per nurse effective September 1, 2006. Compliance with this requirement is ongoing for any nurse who begins practicing in an ED setting as there is no expiration date for this requirement under Texas Occupations Code § 301.306 (NPA).

Frequently asked questions on this targeted CE may be viewed on the BON web page athttp://www.bon.state.tx.us/practice/faq-forensicevidence.html.
