American Health Care: Facing the Challenges

2008 Idaho Conference on Health Care

Continuing Education Units (CEUs) / C.E. Credit Information

Continuing Education Units are the way of recording contact hours (for relicensing, recertification, promotions, maintaining professional memberships and registrations, etc.) when attending continuing education or professional development activities such as workshops, seminars, short courses or conferences. This is a nationally recognized standard which verifies quality content and instruction. CEUs are normally recorded as 1/10 CEU for every contact hour, although different professional associations may record contact hours differently. CEUs do not accumulate for college credit and cannot be used towards a degree.

The Idaho Conference on Health Care will offer CEUs/C.E. credits through the following professional organizations; the cost is included in the conference registration fees. (CEUs issued by ISU are also available for all portions of the conference for a $20 fee per session).
