CE requirements for Oregon nurses:
The Oregon Board of Nursing encourages nurses to participate in continuing education programs as a professional responsibility, but the Board does not require continuing education credits/hours for RN or LPN licensure.
However, the state of Oregon requires that all healthcare providers, including RNs, LPNs, and nurse practitioners, earn 7 hours of pain management-related continuing education. This is a one-time only requirement. Six credits can be taken from CE providers, but the additional 1 hour must be taken from the Oregon Pain Management Commission.
State laws can change. Practitioners are responsible for determining their state’s licensure requirements. To view the Oregon continuing education regulations, click the button below.
