§ 60-40. Continuing education for RN licensees. The Department may adopt rules of continuing education for registered professional
nurses licensed under this Act that require 20 hours of continuing education per 2-year
license renewal cycle. The rules shall address variances in part or in whole for good cause, including
without limitation illness or hardship. The continuing education rules must ensure that licensees are given the opportunity
to participate in programs sponsored by or through their State or national professional
associations, hospitals, or other providers of continuing education. The continuing education rules must allow for a licensee to complete all required
hours of continuing education in an online format. Each licensee is responsible for maintaining records of completion of continuing
education and shall be prepared to produce the records when requested by the Department.
