Connecticut Nurses CE Requirements, Accreditations & Approvals

Connecticut Nurses

In support of improving patient care, NetCE is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.

The Connecticut Board of Examiners for Nursing accepts courses from any provider who is ANCC accredited.
