Planning to attend the AWHONN convention? A few things to know before you go...

If you are a NCC-certified nurse or nurse practitioner and plan to attend the AWHONN convention here are a few things that you should know before you go....

AWHONN sessions have been reviewed by NCC and coded for maintenance.  The NCC CE specialty codes are published in the AWHONN program and available on the convention website. To submit CE earned at the AWHONN convention, simply enter the title, hours earned and assigned specialty code for each session into your maintenance application.

Check your current education plan!  It shows what specialty content needs CE hours in order to maintain your NCC certification during your current maintenance cycle. This will help you decide what sessions are best suited for your professional development. Only CE that is earned in the areas defined by your education plan can be used for NCC maintenance.
If you don't have an education plan - take your assessment. A continuing competency assessment is needed for each NCC maintenance cycle.  It provides the educational plan for the continuing education that must be earned during that cycle. Only CE earned after the assessment can be used to maintain.
