Offer Continuing Nursing Education

Are you looking to offer continuing nursing education (CNE) for a program or event you’re hosting? AANN approves individual educational activities for nursing contact hours!

The American Association of Neuroscience Nurses is accredited as an approver of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation. Please note, AANN does not approve organizations as providers of continuing nursing education and retroactive approval is not available.

Submit Your Event for Approval

To submit your event for approval, please download the application materials, review the pricing and timeline, and e-mail your application to AANN.

Application Materials

The following forms must be submitted with your application. Please note that AANN will be switching to an online application later in 2020. We will still be accepting the applications below for a few months after the transition. If you have specific questions regarding the online application, please email Rita Wirth at
