From Mississippi Nurses Foundation Accreditation Administrator, Dr. Susan Hart

Dear Providers,

During this time of social distancing and Covid-19 concerns, we are making the following recommendations for conducting CE activities:

1. Those providers who have recently submitted CE applications and/or received approval, the expiration date will be TBA until you are able to schedule a date for the activity. As soon as you know the new date of the CE activity, send me an email and a new approval letter will be issued.

2. Move face-to-face CE activities to online activity or enduring activity.

a. Online activity or internet live is provider-driven by offering the activity through WebEx, Zoom, Skype, or any other video conferencing at a specific time or real-time for learners to participate. Send me an email if you are planning to convert the activity and the mode.

b. Enduring activity is learner-driven or self-directed at the learner’s time and space. A resource for moving a live activity to enduring is attached. Send me an email and the completed planning table if you are planning to convert the activity.

Converting live activity to enduring activity

Please email me if you have any questions or need assistance – dr.susanhart@gmail.com
