I’m very much a consumer of the CEU.
I use them for renewing my nursing license every 2 years in my state.
I use them for renewing my CNOR every 5 years.
I use them for maintaining my clinical ladder.
But, I also really enjoy learning.
And teaching to others.
One of my most frequent question is where to find CEUs for any of these purposes.
And every year I compile a list for nurses, departments, and professional practice binders that we use in our hospital units.
I get the list from a variety of sources:
- Online modules/seminars
- Board of nursing in my state
- Offerings from the various organizations I belong to- AORN, ANA, my state nursing council, the organization I work for
- The honor society I belong to- Sigma Theta Tau
- My current favorite is the Beyond Clean offerings about the sterile processing department
Kind of like the clampy project.
CEUs are everywhere.
Or, to horribly misquote Cole Sear from the Sixth Sense, “I see CEUs everywhere. Hanging around in the the internet, from accredited sources, they won’t be counted until they are found and watched or tested.”
I have got to re-watch that movie.
Right after the CITI training module I am on.
You know the one, about research ethics that are required for the research council. and various shared governance councils.
Just me then.
If you want a 2022 updated CEU list, reach out to me and I will send it to you.
