Nebraska Psychologists CE Requirements, Accreditations & Approvals

Nebraska Psychologists

Continuing Education (CE) credits for psychologists are provided through the co-sponsorship of the American Psychological Association (APA) Office of Continuing Education in Psychology (CEP). The APA CEP Office maintains responsibility for the content of the programs.

The Nebraska Board of Examiners of Psychologists accepts courses from any provider who is approved by the American Psychological Association.

Continuing Education Requirement

Attention Nebraska Psychologists: Executive Order 20-10 will defer continuing education requirements for renewals that occur during the emergency, as well as payments of renewal fees. Licenses due to be renewed during the declared emergency will be extended until 30 days after Executive Order 20-10 is no longer in effect. Renewal notices will then be sent, and licensees will have 90 days to renew by attesting to meeting the continuing education requirement and paying the renewal fee. Additionally, the Department will not enforce any limit on the number of continuing education hours obtained online or by home study for renewal or reinstatement of any type of license during the State Declaration of Public Health Emergency. If licensees obtained online or home study CE hours during the emergency because in-person courses were not available, the Department will accept those CE hours even if the renewal (expiration date) for that profession takes place after the emergency has ended. While the psychologist  renewal date is currently January 1, 2021, should the State Declaration of Public Health Emergency continue until the time of expiration for your license, then the suspension of renewal requirements included in Executive Order 20-10 will still be in effect.

Psychologists are required 24 hours every two years, all of which may be completed by home study.
