Professional Education

Accredited Provider with Distinction from the American Nurses Credentialing Center

The University of Maryland School of Nursing is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation (ANCC). 

The Office of Professional Education administers this accreditation program and works with faculty and stakeholders to provide learning activities that meet ANCC standards and provide relevant, effective, and engaging learning activities. 

Lifelong learning for nurses.

Take advantage of both online and in-person learning activities to enhance your professional development through the Office of Professional Education: 

  • continuing education programs for nurses, including symposia, conferences, institutes, and lectures
  • interprofessional continuing education programs in collaboration with the University of Maryland schools of Medicine, Pharmacy, and Social Work and the Graduate School
  • Nurse Leadership Institute, a yearlong leadership development program
  • online continuing education courses

Use CEUs for license renewal!

Nurses with an active Maryland nursing license now have three options for meeting requirements for renewal, including “Completion of 30 continuing education units (CEUs) within the 2 years immediately preceding the date of the renewal application.” This may be particularly useful for nurses who are not currently employed in clinical practice.

The Maryland Board of Nursing will accept CEUs awarded or approved by specific organizations, including the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). UMSON is accredited with distinction as a provider of CEUs by ANCC.

UMSON provides a broad spectrum of CEU learning activities annually in multiple delivery formats, including face to face, live webinars, online enduring programs, and hybrid options to meet the demands of the professional nursing workforce.
