The Geriatric Center and Penn State’s College of Nursing prepare to help Pennsylvania nurses meet Act 58 requirements.
Act 58 is here and it affects all PA registered nurses. Act 58 was signed into law in 2008 and requires that all nursing professionals complete 30 contact hours of continuing education (CE) every two years as a condition for RN license renewal.
To support nurses in meeting these requirements, the Penn State College of Nursing Outreach and the Center of Geriatric Nursing Excellence have partnered to build an easy and user-friendly addition to this website for obtaining nursing CE credits. This online tool will contain course modules on varying topics. All course materials, quizzes, certificates, and member histories are now available through the site at the click of a mouse. New courses will be added on a regular basis.
