Credits are available in the following categories:

  • CHES/MCHES (Category 1 Continuing Education Contact Hours) from NCHEC

The amount of credits that you can receive by attending the conference depends on:

  • The final conference agenda
  • Which sessions you choose to attend
  • The type of credits you are seeking
How to Apply for Credits

Here is how you can obtain your CEUs:

  • Nurses
    When you register for the conference, please indicate that you are seeking nursing credits. After the conference, we will send you your attendance certificate via email. You must submit this certificate directly to the California Board of Registered Nursing to receive CEUs. Keep this certificate for 4 years after the conference in case you are audited by the California Board of Registered Nurses.


Health Educators (CHES/MCHES)
    When you register for the conference, please indicate your degree as MCHES/CHES and enter your license number. After the conference, we will send you your NCHEC certificate via email. We will report your category 1 units directly to the National Commission for Health Education Credentialing, Inc.

Other Healthcare Professionals
    Non-physician healthcare professionals who complete an accredited activity will receive a certificate of attendance. You may submit this certificate to your own credentialing board (nursing, pharmacy, etc.) to see if you can obtain transferable CEUs from your board.

All relevant financial relationships of speakers, moderators, and planners will be disclosed to participants prior to the conference.
