Find My CEU Requirements

Why do nurses need nursing CEUs?

Your education doesn’t end when you graduate from nursing school. It continues throughout your career, in the form of yearly CEU courses and contact hours. If you’re like many, you’ve probably wondered: Why are these courses required?

Here are three reasons why nurses need free nursing continuing education:

1. The law requires it

Failure to complete continuing education requirements may result in the inability to renew your medical license. You may even be charged fines and penalties or not be allowed to pursue a Maintenance of Certification (MOC) with your American Board of Medical Specialty (ABMS).

Some facilities may also have their own continuing education requirements, so be sure to check.

2. You’ll be better at your job

Free Nursing CE can improve your knowledge of best practices in the healthcare industry.

By staying up-to-date on your medical knowledge, you’ll become a better employee at the hospital or facility you work at. This will naturally result in becoming a better nurse to your patients, which has the potential to help people or even save a life.

There really are no downsides to getting free nursing ce.

3. Your job prospects will increase

Increasing your knowledge by taking CEU courses will make you a stronger job candidate.

As stated before, certain facilities have specific nursing CE requirements. By earning these contact hours, you increase your odds of getting hired there. You can also land a better, higher-paying job the more nursing education you obtain and even be able to negotiate higher salaries in your current role.

The more you know, the more your experience is worth. Use that to your advantage.

These are just a few of the many reasons nurses need continuing education. To learn firsthand all the ways you’ll benefit, browse our catalog of paid and free nursing CEUs.
