NIFLA is an approved continuing education provider (California Board of Registered Nursing provider #14563). At the end of a course, all Medical Track attendees will receive a certificate for their CEU contact hours, which is transferable to other states. CEUs are based on the following CA Board of Nursing calculation: 1 CEU equals 50 minutes of classroom instruction or three 50-minute clinical instruction sessions. Each attendee should verify that their state accepts 50 minutes of instruction for 1 CEU and adjust the CEUs they claim accordingly.
