Most states do not require that you submit your certificates for standard license renewals. Typically, you are required to indicate, in good faith, whether or not you have completed the required continuing education. You may be required to submit your certificates if you are audited or if you are reinstating a lapsed license. This will vary from state to state and we always recommend that you contact your State Board of Nursing to determine your reporting requirements.
A subscription is required for electronic reporting to be available.
If you have an Arkansas, Florida, Georgia, New Mexico, South Carolina, West Virginia or District of Columbia license,
we provide instant, automated reporting through CE Broker. To enable this feature, you will first need to add your license to your CEUFast account.
If you have an Alabama license
, we report credits instantly and automatically to the ABN directly, if your Alabama nursing license is accurately entered into your CEUFast account.
If you have or are applying for a New York license
, we provide immediate, electronic reporting to the NYSED for both the 4-hour infection control and 2-hour child abuse courses.
If you have or are applying for a Pennsylvania license
, we provide immediate, electronic reporting to the Pennsylvania Department of State
for both the 2 and 3 hour required Child Abuse courses.
Effective July 2, 2016, the Pennsylvania Department of State updates their electronic records once per day at 6:00 pm. Any
certificates received after 6:00 pm will not
be updated in their system until the following day.
Pennsylvania reporting ONLY:
In order to report your Pennsylvania Child Abuse course to the Pennsylvania DOS you will need to enter your Date of Birth and the last four digits of your Social Security Number after clicking the "Report" link. The Pennsylvania Department of State requires this information be transmitted to them so that credit for the course is ensured to be associated with the correct participant. For security purposes, WE DO NOT STORE the last four of your social or your date of birth
. Once your information is entered it is transmitted directly to the PA Department of State via a 256bit encrypted secure connection. It is not saved in your CEUfast MyAccount information.
Any other states that have proof of completion requirements that are not listed above have not made electronic reporting available.
