Reduction in Contact Hours for CNN Recertification
For CNN’s who recertify by continuing education, only the 45 hours of nephrology nursing content from approved providers will now be required. Because this change represents a decrease in the required contact hours, it is effective immediately. The 60-hour requirement, which could include up to 15 hours of general nursing content, is no longer in effect.
