The purpose of the Continuing Nursing Education (CNE) Planning Committee is to perform a pilot review test on all proposed CNE courses prior to making them available to potential participants, to document time for awarding of nursing contact hours and to ensure appropriateness for CNE as recommended by standards set by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) for continuing nursing education.
Under the direction of the Lead Nurse Planner and Provider Unit Director, committee members will review proposed CNE courses for appropriateness, take post-tests to ensure answers can be located in course and are accurate prior to offering, document the time it takes to complete the activity, advise of any discrepancies between written material and test questions and answers and participate in occasional conference calls during the CNE course planning process to discuss to appropriateness of course for CNE as recommended by standards set by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) for continuing nursing education.
Committee Member Benefit
Committee members may earn complimentary CNE credits for completing assignments within established guidelines and timelines.
