CE Opportunities

Enhance Your Knowledge and Further Develop Your Skills

You know the health care field changes rapidly. That’s why it’s so important that you have the current, evidence-based education you need to enhance your knowledge and improve your practice skills so you may provide the best possible care to your patients.

From live, AANP-developed activities to online video presentations and articles, there are hundreds of continuing education (CE) opportunities available to help you stay on top of your field and shape your practice.

CE Center

Developed by subject matter experts, AANP’s comprehensive CE program provides exemplary educational experiences for nurse practitioners (NPs) and NP students.

  • Members get more! With your membership comes access to the AANP CE Center, which offers a comprehensive library of CE activities for NPs of all specialties and experience levels. Exclusive discounts — and many free activities — are yours as an AANP member to help you complete state licensure requirements and earn the credits needed for recertification.
  • Keeping track of your CE is easier than ever. Completed CE records, including those from AANP national and specialty conferences, are conveniently maintained in the portfolio section of the CE Center. AANP members can also upload non-AANP certificates into their portfolio, keeping all their CE records in one, easy-to-access location.
  • CE that fits your interests and your schedule. CE Center activities come in a variety of formats and topics, including monthly CE activities from the Journal of the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (JAANP) and The Journal for Nurse Practitioners (JNP). All CE activities can be found by category, program delivery type, keywords and title search.

AANP conferences provide essential opportunities for professional growth and practice.

  • The place to be for live CE. The AANP national conference offers hundreds of educational sessions and hands-on workshops each year, many of which come with pharmacology credit.
  • Showcase your work and learn from other industry professionals. AANP offers poster presentations and awards CE credit for unopposed poster sessions. Plus, you’ll have the chance to connect with NPs from across the country for an unparalleled learning experience.
  • AANP annual highlights. See what your association has accomplished throughout the previous year at General Sessions, learn about the regional and state-level policy issues impacting your practice at Regional Meetings and get an in-depth look at the topics that interest you most in seminars or workshops — all with CE credit!
