She is required to earn credits from continuing ed courses to renew RN license every 4 yrs. Last year have to get a CM certification also for a job she has been doing for 7 yrs. The company wanted the certificate for the wall.
I work for an health insurance company as an auditor and I do not CEUs. But the clinical staff do, the company provides several different choices they can take and also pays for the continuing education.
I have 2 different jobs (physical therapy assistant, and massage therapist) and both of them require CEUs to keep up my licenses. I didn't mind when it was just the one license to keep up, but it's become a real hassle now since I feel like I am ALWAYS doing CEUs. However I do feel like I learn a lot from them and that they make me a better therapist.
Technically, I don't have to do any additional training for my current job. I just do it because it looks good as far as credentials go, keeps my boss happy, and, occasionally, I actually learn something useful.
