CE Broker is the official CE tracking system for more than 1.7 million licensees nationwide. Now nearly 26,000 New Mexico professional nurses can skip the hassle of CE reporting and let this online service do the work.

The fast and efficient electronic reporting streamlines the renewal processes for nurses, eliminating reporting stress.

To enable the feature on CEUfast, go to the “Edit Profile” section of your CEUfast account to add your New Mexico nursing license number. Remember, the license information on your CEUfast account must match exactly with the information on file with CE Broker for your license to be validated. Be careful entering in this information so ensure your credits will be accurately reported.

Once your license has been validated, your CEs will automatically submit to CE Broker on CEUfast following successful completion of a test. Need more help enabling CE Broker automated reporting? Find step-by-step directions here.
