Guidelines for NANP Continuing Education Unit (CEU) Review

We appreciate your interest in submitting your CEU program(s) for NANP review. NANP members THRIVE on education and our profession demands lifelong learning to remain adept. Achieving Category I CEU status is of benefit to you, as our members look to the NANP to direct them to trustworthy providers of superior educational programs. NANP requires a maximum of thirty (30) CEUs per two-year period for Board Certified members and ten (10) CEUs for annual professional membership renewal. CEUs are granted on a one (1) contact hour to one (1) continuing education unit equivalency.

Following are the types of programs the NANP will review for CEU purposes. Please examine these carefully before submitting your program for consideration.

Advanced & Specialty Education Programs (not to exceed thirty (30) CEUs)

  • Samples of homework, quizzes, exams, writing assignments, and final exams
