Continuing Education Courses for RNs and PNs

California Nurse License Renewal

First Renewal
If this is your first renewal following the issuance of your license, you are not required to complete thirty (30) hours of CE.

Renewal Cycle
Your first California nurse license is issued for two birthdays - not two years - and it will expire the last day of the month following your birth date. From that date on, it will expire every two years, if renewed timely. The course(s) must have been completed within two (2) years prior to the date of renewal of your license.

Continuing Education
All RNs and LVNs in the State of California who wish to maintain an active license are required to complete 30 hours of continuing education for license renewal. The continuing education course(s) must be taken through a Board approved Continuing Education Provider.

Homestudy Courses
There is no limit to the number of contact hours that can be completed through independent or home study courses.

Do not send your original CE certificates to the Board. All RNs and LVNs are subject to random audits of CE compliance. You are required to keep certificates or grade-slips for four years as proof of CE completion in the event of an audit.

Refer to the Board of Nursing website for additional information:
