Notice to Activity Coordinators:

When planning an educational event for nursing contact hours, planners are advised to first review the 2014 CNE Update Information Sheet. Activity Coordinators should always download new forms during the planning stage. Forms should not be saved, as progressive changes will take place as expected with the science of continuing education.
A detailed, comprehensive and in-depth Submissions Guidelines Instructional document will be uploaded later this year.
