CE Tracking - Frequently Asked Questions
Below is a list of our most commonly asked questions about this continuing education service. Remember that this is not integrated with the software used for ACHPN and CHPN recertification, so if you are using this service as an ACHPN or CHPN, you must print the CE tracking information out and manually update your learning plan in LearningBuilder. If you have any questions about this list, or have additional questions or need further information, please contact us at 412-787-1057 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org
What is CE tracking?
Continuing education (CE) tracking is a function of the Learning Management System (LMS) E-Learning technology provided by the Hospice and Palliative Nurses Association (HPNA). Through the CE tracking, you can keep track of your professional activities and print your record to document your professional achievements.
Is there a fee using this service for CE tracking?
No, this particular CE tracking service is free. However, HPNA through the Nurses Learning Network (NLN), provides LMS E-learning programs which have member and non-member pricing. The fee varies according to the number of contact hours awarded per program. HPNA members link through the members only area of the website to receive member pricing on these programs.
How is this useful for HPAR?
When used for the Hospice and Palliative Accrual for Recertification (HPAR) process, the printed transcript may be submitted in place of the individual completed “activity logs.” The “summary log” in the HPAR packet must still be completed for submission and reflect the summary of activities captured on your CE tracking transcript.
Is LMS e-learning required for tracking my HPAR continuing education?
No. Interactive or self-study continuing education activities can be provided by a variety of organizations. However, all continuing education activities selected for HPAR submission must have been provided or formally approved for contact hours by an accredited provider or approver of continuing education. One of the most common accreditors is the American Nurses Credentialing Center Commission on Accreditation. Some state boards of nursing have a system for the formal approval of continuing education providers. Refer to the appropriate HPAR application packet for further information regarding approved accredited providers.
How do I access HPNA e-learning to take some courses?
Go to Nurses Learning Network and register (if it is your first time there) or login to get started.
May I include continuing education activities from outside providers?
Yes, you can include entries on your CE tracking transcript from outside providers other than HPNA E-learning courses. Remember that for HPAR submission you are to only submit those entries that are provided by an approved accredited provider.
How do I print a transcript and choose specific activities from my transcript?
You may print from the “CE Log Book” page in “My Records.” To print selected entries, click on the check box in the last column. Then click “Print Selected Transcripts” located at the bottom of the page. You can print a transcript at any time choosing whichever activities from the various professional development categories meet the reason for the transcript (e.g., professional resume, license renewal, or submission for HPAR).
What internet browser is best for viewing programs?
Functionality is best achieved using the most updated Microsoft browser available, like Microsoft Edge, or by using Chrome or Firefox.
