CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDIT
We are approved by three organizations for continuing education credits: nurses, acupuncturists and nutritionists with the National Association of Nutrition Professionals (NANP).
WHAT YOU DO IF YOU WANT TO RECEIVE CREDIT FOR ATTENDING
The fee for CEUs is ($65/3 days; $25/day). Each morning at the conference you must sign in at the CEU desk near registration. Before you depart the conference (not each day), you must submit the required paperwork at the same desk. Certificates will be emailed to you in the month following the conference.
We are approved by the Maryland Nurses Association. Total possible credit hours for 3 days: 15.25 hours (Friday 6.5 hours; Saturday 5; Sunday 3.75). Please see the list below for the talks approved for credit*. (Maryland Nurses Association is an accredited approver of nursing continuing professional development by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.)
We are approved by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM). Total possible credit hours for 3 days: 16 (Friday 6.5 hours; Saturday 5; Sunday 4.75). All states accept this approval except Florida and California. NOTE: not all talks are approved for credit. These were excluded due to subject matter: Ken Rohla, Tom Cowan, William Trebing, Josh del Sol Beaulieu, Naomi Wolf, Cal Washington and Alec Zeck.
We have been approved by the National Association of Nutrition Professionals (NANP). Total possible credit hours for 3 days: 15 (Friday 5.25 hours; Saturday 5; Sunday 4.75).
Other Nutritionists: Check with your board to see if a Certificate of Attendance will suffice for you to receive credit.
We did not apply for approval. But you can check with your state board. Some states give credit under the NCCAOM/acupuncturists approval mentioned above. Please let us know if your state will accept it.
CERTIFICATE OF ATTENDANCE - $5 FEE
FOR OTHER PROFESSIONS
Check with your professional board to see if a Certificate of Attendance will suffice. As far as we know it will for RDs, some NDs and some nutritionists (besides NANP). Purchase the Certificate of Attendance when you register. You are not required to sign in each day or submit an evaluation. You simply receive the certificate after the conference to submit to your board.
According to the Commission on Dietetic Registration, CDR Credentialed Practitioners may receive up to 15 cpeus for attending our conference. You will not need to sign in each day but will have to obtain and retain in your files a Certificate of Attendance. You will need to keep track and submit talks attended with the appropriate Learning Need Codes. If you are in Florida, Illinois, Pennsylvania or Texas, you should check with your board to see if they will accept this.
