Continuing Nursing Education (CNE)

Eastern Maine Medical Center Clinical Education is a member of the Northeast Multi-State Division (NE-MSD), a collaborate group of individual autonomous states (Maine, Vermont, New Hampshire, Rhode Island, Connecticut, and New York) providing ANCC- approved contact hours for nurses.  Through NE-MSD, EMMC Clinical Education is able to offer CNEs that adhere to national standards of excellence in order to promote professional competence and high-quality nursing practice. 

If you are interested in obtaining CNE credits for a program, a Nurse Planner for the activity is required.  This is a registered nurse who holds a baccalaureate degree or higher in nursing, and who has been approved for this role by EMMC Clinical Education.  The nurse planner coordinates the planning process for the program, to include completion of all required paperwork.  Please contact a staff developer at to obtain assistance with the planning process, identify a nurse planner, or if you are interested in becoming a nursing planner.
