Common Coding Questions

How do I know what content each specialty code covers? On the maintenance application for each code there is a more information link. The link will provide you with access to content outline for the code and keyword topics. You can also get the same information from Is My CE Acceptable link under the Maintain Your Certification section on the website. You have two options: You can code to the content area that represents the majority of the content presented. OR You can breakout content per code (You may combine different sessions of the same content code.) and record total hours for each code, listing the same conference for every content code entry. 45 hours is the maximum hours needed in Stage 1 maintenance, so once you meet the 45 hours in Stage 1 or the CE requirements designated by your education plan in Stage 2, the application will automatically take you to the payment page. There is no need to enter more CE than is required 10 hours of CE can be used for precepting students, in your same certification specialty area and role. (e.g. In order for a WHNP to use the credit they cannot preceptor nurse midwifes or residents ­ only WHNP students.) Orienting new staff is NOT considered as preceptor hours. On the application select the more information link for the preceptorship code 24 and it will give you information on how to list the information. This is also applicable to any of the "other" codes. If the CE is applicable to both areas and was earned in the appropriate time frame for each certification, yes. But you still need to file a separate maintenance application and fee for each certification. Each CE activity will be coded to each application.

I went to a conference with topics that reflect many different codes, how do I code them?

I could not list all my CE. I have many more hours but the maintenance application would not let me list them. I was a preceptor for new students, can I use this for maintenance and how do I list it on the application. How do I code it?

I have multiple certifications. Can I use the same CE for both. How can I code it for two different certifications.
