Developing Continuing Education for Contact Hour Approval Through NAON

Cutilli, Carolyn Crane


Developing quality continuing nursing education for contact-hour approval requires a basic understanding of the continuing nursing education (CNE) system and the application process through the National Association of Orthopaedic Nurses (NAON). The Approver Unit of NAON helps CNE providers (i.e., members, chapters, and corporate members) develop education activities and obtain contact hour approval. This article contains the latest information on CNE terminology and the application process for contact-hour approval through NAON.
