• New Cultural Competency Continuing Education Requirement for Nurses

    During this last Legislative session, Assembly Bill 327 passed and will become effective January 1, 2022. All licensee holders (RNs, LPNs, APRNs, CRNAs) must complete one or more courses of instruction that provide at least 2 hours of continuing education (CEs/CEUs) relating to cultural competency, diversity, equity, and inclusion. This is to be completed with EVERY renewal cycle. While CNAs are not mandated to complete this instruction, we do encourage you to do so. Any nurse who submits a renewal application on or after January 1, 2022, will be required to attest that they have completed this requirement to be eligible for license renewal.
