How to earn free CEUs for nurses


Nurses are often required to earn a certain number of CEUs (continuing education units) to maintain their license or satisfy their employer's continuing education requirements. Several websites offer free CEUs for nurses who read a presentation and pass an online post test.

Things You'll Need

  • Computer
  • Internet access
  • Printer
  • Paper to print certificates
  • Access the internet and visit one of the sites listed below in resources. Topics vary widely, but you should find at least one topic of interest to you.

  • Register at the site. Registering is usually necessary to gain access to the continuing education area and by registering you ensure your name is printed on the certificate of completion.

  • Read the education presentation carefully. Think of key points and how the article could be summarized. Don't prepare too much though; most sites allow the user to retake the test if they don't pass the first time.

  • Most presentations require an evaluation or a post test. Submit the evaluation or pass the post test and print out your certificate or wait for the certificate to be mailed, if applicable.

Tips & Warnings

  • Try to find articles that interest you, preferably ones applicable to your specialty.
  • Make sure the continuing education is targeted for nurses. Some courses only offer credit for doctors or select groups of allied health professionals.
