Contact Hours are Available to many Health Professionals

10 contact hours are available for the entire conference. *The cost of contact hours is included in your registration fee. 

Thursday, September 3: 6 contact hours   Friday, September 4: 4 contact hours

Contact hours are acceptable for Nurses and may be acceptable for Social Workers, Occupational Therapists, Physical Therapists, Mental Health Practitioners, Educators and Vocational Rehabilitation Counselors. Please have your license number when registering for continuing education at the conference.

*For the State of Nebraska, disciplines, other than nursing, usually require the certificate of completion as well as the objectives and course schedule for verification. You will need to check with your state governing board to see if they would accept the event as continuing education for your profession. Since nursing contact hour standards are quite high, the BIA-NE conference hours are generally accepted for other disciplines, except speech therapy.

Since this is a virtual conference, you will need to take extra measures to receive hours and your certificate.

Please contact Cindy for additional information on the procedures, 402-304-8103 or cindy@biane.org.
