Detailed Rhode Island License Renewal Information

Nursing CEU

The Rhode Island Board of Nurse Registration and Nursing Education requires nurses seeking to renew a nursing license to complete 10 continuing education hours during every two year licensing cycle, two of those hours must be about substance abuse.

Approved training includes courses approved by the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

At renewal, nurses must sign a statement attesting to completion of the continuing education requirements.

A six-month extension for the continuing education requirement may be granted by the Board if the nurse has suffered a hardship. Documentation of course completions should be retained for four years.
