A No, your CERPs
in Category A may come from either Clinical Judgment or Clinical Inquiry CERPs
or a combination of both.

So I had more than enough CERPs to successfully renew.
CERPs must total 100 during the three-year renewal period.
At the new Free Online CE Center, AACN members can sort CEs by the Synergy CERPs category.
Remember, you may count some activities toward your renewal CERPs (these are designated by an asterisk *)
For your convenience, CE activities in AACN's Online CE Center are already categorized by Synergy CERPs. Those for NTI 2007 have been categorized by Synergy CERPs as well.
Proof of continued employment in the remote ICU setting is a required component of a successful petition, as is submission of CERPs documentation.
