CE Requirements for Nursing Licenses

Every two years, the Georgia Nursing Board requires nurses to complete the following continuing education contact hours to comply with licensing requirements:

  • 30 contact hours for RN license renewal
  • 20 contact hours for LPN license renewal
  • 30 contact hours for APRN license renewal

Licensees may select one of five options to fulfill the continuing competency/education requirements. Licensees should submit all documentation to CE Broker using the instructions contained on the Board’s website. Licensees who submit a renewal application and do not complete the continuing competency requirements will be considered to have submitted an incomplete renewal and the license will not be renewed.
