Share |



An Individual Activity Applicant is defined as an individual, organization, or part of an organization submitting an educational activity for approval to awarding continuing nursing education (CNE) contact hours.  The educational activity must be intended to build upon the educational and experiential bases of the professional RN for the enhancement of practice, education, administration, research, or theory development, to improve the health of the public and RN's pursuit of their professional career goals.  Examples of an individual activity include but are not limited to a live educational activity (offered once or recurring), a conference, or an online course or webinar.  An individual activity is approved for two years during which time it can be offered exactly as approved only.


  • Your organization is not a commercial interest organization as defined by ANCC.
  • The Nurse Planner is a currently  licensed RN with a baccalaureate degree or higher in nursing who is actively involved in all aspects of planning, implementation, and evaluation of the CNE Activity. 
  • The planning committee has at least two people --one Nurse Planner and one other planner to plan each educational activity.  The Nurse Planner is knowledgeable of the CNE process and is responsible for adherence to the ANCC criteria.  One planner needs to have appropriate subject matter expertise for the educational activity being offered (Content Expert) and can also be the Nurse Planner or a Presenter who is on the Planning Committee.
