Distance Learning

Nurses may receive credit for a live course presented using distance learning technologies, such as teleconferences or webinars. An Iowa Board of Nursing-approved provider, a provider approved by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), or a provider approved by another board of nursing in a mandatory continuing education state. The certificate of completion must show the location of the event. 

Courses taken as a self-study or video event over the internet, are acceptable if they are either covered by an approved provider. Access to this list: https://nursing.iowa.gov/continuing-education/continuing-ed-licensees/what-continuing-education-qualifies
