Does Kentucky accept continuing education from Nursing CE central?

Yes, the Kentucky Board of Nursing accepts continuing education from Nursing CE Central for purposes of license renewal.

Are tests required?

No. The Kentucky Board of Nursing does not require that tests be taken in order to issue certificates. We do not feel that tests are an efficient use of nurses’ time. Therefore, we do not require tests. You simply need to read the material and certify you have learned the material with one click.

When is the license renewal deadline?

LPNs and RNs must renew their licenses by October 31st, 2024.

What happens if I miss the deadline

If you don’t renew your license before midnight on October 31, 2024, it will lapse, and you will no longer be able to work in Kentucky.

Can I still work if I miss the deadline?

No, you can’t work in Kentucky with a lapsed license.

How do I complete a course?

Once you enroll you will have access to all courses. To complete a course, you read and learn the course materials, then testify that you have done so by clicking a button. Once this is complete your certificate will be issued.

How do I access my certificates once a course is completed?

Your certificate will be instantly emailed to you once you complete a course. Additionally, it is available online for you to access at any time. We keep a record of your certificates for five years.

Are the courses timed?

No. Users may complete the courses at their own pace. Nursing CE Central does not monitor your time spent in courses.

What is your refund policy?
