NCC Past President, Cathy Witt, PhD, APRN, NNP-BC will be attending the National Association of Neonatal Nurses’ 34th Annual Conference in Anaheim, California. If you are interested in volunteering, certification or just want to discuss professional practice, stop the NANN headquarters to talk to Cathy.
If you are planning to use CE earned at the conference for your NCC maintenance . . .
Review 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.
