Continuing Nursing Education (CNE) Contact Hours

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

To receive contact hours for the CNE sessions offered during the program, participants are required to attend the entire session, complete the CNE event evaluation, and complete the evaluation for each session attended. Certificates for attendees, presenters, moderators, and continuing nursing education can be retrieved after the online evaluation is complete. The number of contact hours awarded to each participant will be based on the number of evaluations completed for each session attended or poster viewed.
