Question: Should Mandatory Continued Education CoursesPublished 7/30/2010

Missouri and Oklahoma do not require mandatory continued education classes for license renewal while Kansas nurses must receive at least 30 continued education hours prior to license renewal (every two years). Arkansas requires  15 contact hours every two years prior to renewal (20 if license expires) and Texas requires 20 contact hours prior to renewal.

07-26-10 No.  It is an added expense with minimal benefit.  I have friends who are RN's in states that require CEU's - one in particular who has not worked as an RN in years but obtains the CEU's to renew.  She says she basically pays the expensive fees and goes through the motions to renew -- with very little useful, practical information.  Continuing education should be provided by the employer so it is more tailored to the RN's actual job duties, not something completely irrelevant just to renew the license.

07-26-10 After 25 years of practice in the nursing field, I have seen tremendous changes and I have also seen nurses who can’t or won’t keep up with those changes. I feel continued education is what we do on a regular basis, if we want to be “safe” and “skilled” nurses. Yes, I support the idea of requiring continued education for all licensed nurses.. I soon will be in the “older adult population” and I want to know that those who will be caring for me will know what they are doing, I pray.
