To stay current and keep your nursing license active, you’ll need to meet your CEU (continuing education unit) requirements. Continuing education is crucial to success within the nursing profession, and since each state has its own CEU requirements, it can be tricky for travel nurses to stay on top of things as they move from placement to placement. Nurse.com is a useful resource that allows you to search by state and find your exact requirements—if you take a look now, you can start planning for any necessary courses to ensure that you don’t fall behind.
You don’t need to shell out your hard-earned cash to earn your credits—often your employer will cover the costs for attending conferences or conventions, and there are lots of resources out there that can help you find free ways to meet your quota. At RNCentral.com, they’ve compiled a round-up of sites where you can get your CEUs squared away without breaking the bank.
