CNE (Contact hours)

Each item on our agenda (except Continental Breakfast, Breaks and Exhibit Time) are eligible for CNE’s.  GASN is applying for these CNE’s on your behalf.   

This activity has been submitted to the Georgia Nurses Association for approval to award contact hours. The Georgia Nurses Association is accredited as an approver of nursing continuing professional development by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.

You will receive a link to complete your speaker evaluations. Once completed you will receive a copy of your CNE’s earned. You will need to keep this in a safe place where you can find it in the future. We suggest keeping a copy in your files and 1 on your computer so you can find either of them when you go to renew your GA License.

**Please note that no partial CNE credits are given. You must attend all main conference sessions to receive all Main Conference Credits.
