Continuing education hours required for license
The NJ State Board of Nursing adopted a ruling that requires nurses to complete 30 hours of continuing education every two years. The programs must be related to nursing and approved by an agency accredited by the National Commission for Certifying Agencies, such as the ANCC. Successful completion of a course related to nursing offered by a college or university counts toward this requirement, as does the development of a curriculum. If you would like to read the details of this ruling, please visit the NJ Board of Nursing Web site: www.state.nj.us/lps/ca/adoption/nurado51II.htm
The School of Nursing will continue to offer programs to meet these requirements and we intend to increase our offerings in the coming years. If there are topics that you would like to see offered or if you are interested in offering a program, please contact Barbara Paskewich at 732-571-3443 or send e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
