Courses & Certificates

Are the courses timed?

No. The number of contact hours is calculated based upon an average learner. It may require more or less time from you. We do not track the amount of time you spend in a course or on the website.

Is a test required for certificates?

Most State Boards of Nursing do not mandate any tests or assessments. However if you are a nurse licensed in Ohio or Florida, your State Board of Nursing mandates a short assesment at the end of certain state required courses.

This assessment is not timed and is able to be completed at your convenience, as many times as you would like, until you pass.

If you are not licensed in these two specific states, you simply read the material and certify that you have read and learned the material by clicking “complete”.

Upon completing a course, your certificate is available immediately.

How do I complete a course and receive my certificate?

Completing courses with Nursing CE Central is a seamless process. Simply read and learn the material, then click “complete” to testify you have read and learned the material.
