As a Florida RDN who happens to work in CE, I get lots of questions this time of year about what we need to renew. So here’s a quick recap of our requirements, plus I’ve included a 20% off coupon to help with any remaining CE needs.
CE Required: 30 hours every 2 years, of which:
2 hours on Preventing Medical Errors in Nutrition are required each renewal
3 hours on HIV/AIDS are required for your first renewal only
Up to 20 hours may be earned through online (home study) courses
License Renewal Deadline: May 31, 2015
10 of the 30 required hours must be “live.” You can take certain webinars to meet the live hours as long as they allow for interaction between you and the speaker.
Still need CE? You can save 20% on all online CE courses @ PDR (up to 20 hours allowed per renewal) and we report to CE Broker for you.
Here are a few popular online CE courses:
- Nutrition for Eating Disorders is a 3-hour online continuing education (CE/CEU) course that describes the goals of nutrition therapy for the treatment of eating disorders.
- Nutrition Education for Diabetes Mellitus is a 2-hour online continuing education (CE/CEU) course that describes the rationale and goals for providing medical nutrition therapy (MNT) for the treatment and prevention of diabetes mellitus.
- Adult Obesity: Prevention and Treatment is a 2-hour online continuing education (CE/CEU) course that provides Registered Dietitian/Nutritionists (RDNs) with evidence-based, non-biased information on the prevention and treatment of obesity in adults.
Please let me know if you have any other questions. I’m happy to help! And please feel free to share this information with friends and colleagues.
