  • Your CE accrual dates now will be tailored to you! Contact hours for certification renewal must be obtained during the three (3) -year certification period. If your certification expires in 2018, you may use appropriate CE accrued starting the EARLIER of either 1) November 2, 2015, OR 2) the date of your most recent official exam or renewal certification letter from IAFN.  Can't find your letter? Simply:

  • 1.  Click “Certification” at the top of this page and choose “IAFN-Certified Nurses” from the dropdown menu

    2.     Select the appropriate certification and search for your name

    3.     Look for the "SANE Certification Start Date" for the certification you are renewing. Note the date to list on your application--and feel free to use any appropriate CE from that date forward! You may accrue CE until November 1, 2018. 

  • Contact hours received prior to passing the exam or after November 1, 2018, are not accepted.

 

 

NOTE: Last year, 99% of our applicants for renewal by CE were APPROVED!
