Office of the National Nurse

     The Board of Directors of the National Nursing Network Organization is dedicated to insuring that the same quality of health care afforded to past generation of Americans is available to future generations. Their mission is to promote, encourage, and support the implementation of the Office of the National Nurse and other projects that promote wellness
and disease prevention. The National Nursing Network Organization supports the creation of opportunities for licensed practical and registered nurses to work together to solve our country’s health care crisis and improve the health of all Americans.
     The work of the National Nursing Network Organization is focused on establishing an Office of a National Nurse to:

. Involve all Americans in preventive health practices.
. Complement health services already in place.
. Focus national attention on the nursing profession.
. Establish volunteer National Nurse teams to deliver health education to the public and assist in emergency situations in their own communities.

A manuscript detailing this health policy was published in the February 2007 issue of Policy, Politics, and Nursing Practice  http://ppn.sagepub.com/cgi/content/short/8/1/64

State Boards of Nursing
We will be listing as many State Boards as possible with any special CEU requirements.
*Note: (applies to most states)
A "contact hour" credit refers to 1 hour (50-minute hour) of instruction or 1 hour of self-study (home study). 30 contact hours equals 30 hours of instruction or 30 hours of home study.

*Note: As of January 2007, Taylor College will be following the ANCC requirements that all Continuing Education classes be based on a full 60-minute hour.
A "CEU" refers to "Continuing Education Unit." 1.0 CEU = 10 contact hours, (hours of instruction) or 10 contact hours of home study (self-study).
In California nurses need 30 contact hours, OR 3.0 CEUs every two years. Many people use the terms "CEUs" and "contact hours" interchangeably.  However, 30 contact hours is the requirement in California and other states.  (30 contact hours = 3.0 CEUs)
