Continuing education contact hours must be earned during the period of November 1, 2020 – October 31, 2021. You do not have to complete the contact hours before submitting the renewal application and paying the renewal fee. Hours must be completed before October 31, 2021.
Nurses do not need to submit proof of earning their CE at the time of renewal. When you submit your application, you are attesting that you have completed or will complete the continuing competency requirement by midnight on October 31, 2021.
The KBN has partnered with CE Broker so that nurses can upload CE documents into their CE Broker account to provide proof of completion of their CE requirements and to keep track of continuing education. With the exception of nurses selected for the CE Audit, the use of CE Broker is optional but encouraged. The Basic CE Broker package is free for the nurse.
Additional information can be obtained about Continuing Education requirements on the KBN website.
