AANA to Return to Awarding Credit for ACLS/PALS

Effective with programs taken on or after May 1, 2013, the AANA is pleased to announce that it will again award CE Credit for Life Support provider and/or renewal courses. Examples of acceptable content include ACLS, PALS, NRP, and other similar offerings. This change is in response to a revision by the American Nurses Credentialing Centers (ANCC). On May 1, 2013, the ANCC reversed their 2009 decision to restrict life support content for RN continuing education. This reversal means that once again, the AANA can prior approve and non-prior approve acceptable life support content. These credits as approved by the AANA will be acceptable toward recertification through the National Board of Certification and Recertification for Nurse Anesthetists (NBCRNA). Requirements and conditions do apply in order for content to be eligible for credit. Updated application materials will be posted soon. In the interim, you may use the existing materials on the AANA CE webpage. If you have any questions or concerns, please contact us via ContinuingEducation @aana.com.
