How do I access my free continuing education?

NSH members have the opportunity to earn 6 free continuing education credits each year. There is a new CEU opportunity posted every quarter on the NSH website. You must be logged in to view them. You can also find the free CE hours on the online learning center, Here you can also find other free member resources like troubleshooting guides, checklists, and sample SOPs. 

How do I keep track of my CEUs?

All continuing education records are maintained through the NSH CE Tracker.  To access the NSH CE Tracker, login to your NSH account and go to the CE Tracker section of your dashboard.  Events attended through NSH, such as the Symposium/Convention are added for you. Other non-NSH events, such as state meetings must be self-reported using the event dropdown menu in the session tracker. You can print certificates from the CE Tracker, however, NSH does not send your CEUs to ASCP. You are responsible for providing them if documentation is requested.
