Contact Hours

Sigma Theta Tau International Honor Society of Nursing (Sigma) is accredited as a provider of nursing continuing professional development (NCPD) by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.

To receive contact hours for the NCPD sessions offered during the program, participants are required to attend the entire session, complete the NCPD event evaluation, and complete the evaluation for each session attended. Certificates for attendees, presenters, moderators, and NCPD can be retrieved after the online evaluation is complete.

Contact hours for education activity are available for 30 days following the end of the program. The deadline to receive continuing nursing education contact hours is 6 September 2022.
