Random fact… couponing is not what I went to college for. In real life I am a Registered Nurse. I haven’t worked in nursing since Southern Savers took over our life, but after working incredibly hard to get my license I’m not about to let it slip away. If you are like me, and searching for Continuing Education credits (CEUs) then check out my list on where to look for completely free credits.
Note: You need to verify with your state licensing office or website that a CEU is from an accepted and accredited program. The programs listed below are all ANCC accredited.
Sites to Get Free CEUs
CDC Continuing Education & Training
This site has all the CEU courses listed for most government health sites. Many are web based for you to do at your leisure. As you complete tests, the system keeps your earned credits and will print a certificate if needed for hours completed. Select show all, so see everything offered. It’s not the best organized, but with over 200 options you are bound to find all the hours you need.
My favorites are to sort by Keyword MMWR and then you will have a number that are disease based (and a great thing to stay up on).
Baylor College of Medicine CME
All Continuing Medical Education credits are free of charge. They currently have 12 courses offering around 11 CEU’s total.
Nurse Oncology Education Program
These are specifically for Nursing CEUs, which in my opinion makes them slightly more enjoyable to read. They have over 25 courses available each offering between .5 and 2.5 hours.
These are all CEU courses dealing with Respiratory Care, including tracheostomy, speaking valves etc. This is very specialized, but great for anyone in the pediatric or critical care fields. This is one that you may need to check with your state board before taking, they are accredited through other organizations but not the ANCC.
