MedEdNow is an accepted continuing education provider in California as a CAPCE accredited program. We also follow the guidelines of the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT).

MedEdNow has a live instructor available in all of our virtual instructor led courses and programs. We also make available to the students enrolled in self paced courses an educator via chat or email if the student has any questions regarding clinical content.

Please note: Some counties in California have a limit on the number of continuing education units you may complete per day that are self-paced. Please check with your local governing body on this requirement.

In the State of California, Registered nurses are required by law (California Code of Regulations, Section 1451, Article 5) to complete 30 contact hours of continuing education every two years, in addition to paying the renewal fee, to maintain an active license. Continuing education courses must have been completed during the preceding renewal period (when renewing) or during the preceding two years (when renewing a delinquent or lapsed license, or going from an inactive to active license). Courses must be taken through a continuing education provider recognized by the Board of Registered Nursing.
RNs are advised to use the BreEZe License Verification system to check the current status of the provider’s CEP number to ensure it is still active. Courses are not eligible for contact hours when the provider number is in an expired status.
