Education from DDNA


2014 Annual Conference CE: Deadline for Submitting Evaluations

You may use Continuing Education (CE) credits earned at the DDNA Annual Education Conference toward your certification renewal and also toward your nursing relicensure. To obtain your conference CE certificates, log in and select the "Session Evaluations" link in the "Conference" drop-down at the top of this page. You can evaluate the sessions you attended and print out your CE certificates.  The deadline for submitting your conference evaluations for CE is June 20th, 2014. 

If you miss the date for submitting your session evaluations, you can still print out "certificates of completion," which may or may not be accepted by your state for relicensure purposes. A certificate of completion will be accepted by DDNA for CDDN or DDC recertification purposes.
