A few more things that you should know before you go . . .

ANN sessions have been reviewed and coded for maintenance by NCC. The NCC CE specialty codes are published in the conference brochure and available on the conference website. Use the provided coding to choose the continuing education appropriate for your NCC maintenance.

Check your education plan! It will help you decide what sessions are best suited for your professional development. Your education plan shows what specialty content areas needs CE hours in order to maintain your NCC certification. 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. The assessment generates your educational plan and defines the CE needed for your current maintenance cycle. Only CE earned after the assessment can be used to maintain.
