CNE Contact Hours

Effective January 1, 2007, the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) mandates that continuing nursing education providers change the way that continuing education is calculated. One (1.0) contact hour of continuing nursing education (CNE) will now be issued for activities that are 60 minutes in length, rather than the previous ratio of 1.0 contact hour for a 50-minute activity. AWHONN is also distinguished as an ANCC Premier Program Provider for Excellence in Continuing Nursing Education.

The ANCC Premier program recognizes accredited continuing nursing education providers that continually raise the bar for quality and employ cutting edge CNE practices.

AWHONN is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center Commission on Accreditation (ANCC). Questions regarding Continuing Nursing Education (CNE) or contact hours should be directed to, please include your name, address and preferred method of contact (email or phone).
