CONTINUING EDUCATION CREDIT
2020 WISE TRADITIONS CONFERENCE
NURSES, ACUPUNCTURISTS AND MASSAGE THERAPISTS
We offer continuing education credits for two professions: nurses and acupuncturists. (Nutritionists and RDs only need a certificate of attendance as explained below.) Once you have signed up and paid for the credits you will have to sign in each morning and provide an evaluation before you depart. Acupuncturists must also submit an attendance record. Nurses get credit for attending the talks listed below. Certificates will be emailed to each CEU-receipient after the conference.
Pending Nursing: Total possible for 3 days: 16.25 hours (Friday 7 hours; Saturday 5; Sunday 4.25). We are approved by the Maryland Nurses Association to award contact hours for nurses. The Maryland Nurses Association is accredited as an approver of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation (ANCC), all states accept this. Please note only certain lectures are approved for credit* (see below) Each day has a different number of credits possible: Friday 7, Saturday 5 and Sunday 4.25, for a total possible of 16.25 hours.
Pending Acupuncture: Total possible for 3 days: 16.75 hours (not accepted by California and Florida). Approved by the National Certification Commission for Acupuncture and Oriental Medicine (NCCAOM): Possible number of points is 18 PDA for full conference. Maximum each day: Friday = 7 PDAs, Saturday = 5.5, Sunday = 4.25 (PDA points are accepted by all states except California and Florida.)
Massage Therapists: Check with your state board. Some states, like North Carolina, credit under the NCCAOM approval we get for acupuncturists. Please let us know if your state will accept it.
Fees: The fee for CEUs is $25 per day or $65 for all three days. In an effort to keep our registration fees low, we do not build this fee into the registration price but charge only those receiving credit.
CERTIFICATE OF ATTENDANCE
For RDs, some NDs and some nutritionists, a Certificate of Attendance will suffice to give you 5 credit hours each day. You do not have to sign in or submit an evaluation. You simply receive the certificate which you submit to your board or school.
RDs - only need to get the $5 Certificate of Attendance. According to the Commission on Dietetic Registration, CDR Credentialed Practitioners may receive up to 15 cpeus for attending our conference (5 more for Monday). 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 and of 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.

Other Professions – You can get a Certificate of Attendance and see if your board will accept it.
