CNE is Changing – Will it Impact Certification?

CNE is Changing to NCPD

The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), an accrediting body for nursing education, is changing the term continuing nursing education (CNE) to nursing continuing professional development (NCPD). ANCC-approved educational providers will transition to the new term through 2020.  Please note:

  • The renewal point value of NCPD credit is the same as for CNE.   1 contact hour of CNE or NCPD = 1 renewal point.  
  • You may see the term “CNE/NCPD” used on the ONCC resources during the transition.
  • ONCC will accept both CNE and NCPD for renewal (as long as the CNE/NCPD is approved for credit by an acceptable approver/provider of nursing education).
