Manage Your Health Care Continuing Education Units

Divide and Conquer

Remember the stress you felt in college when you had to write that 15-page paper overnight even though you’d been given four months to finish it? Multiply that anxiety by 10 and you’ll get a sense of what it must be like to have had, say, three years to complete your CEU requirements — and to have little or nothing to show for it at the two-and-a-half-year mark.

As is the case with most major tasks, you’ll reduce the pressure you feel and perform better if you take a methodical, piece-by-piece approach to completing your CEUs. Suppose your state licensing board requires you to complete 25 hours of CEUs every two years. Twenty-five hours over two years is 12.5 hours per year, and 12.5 hours per year breaks down to roughly one hour per month. If you can devote about a half-day (and a little money and energy) each month to continuing-education activities, you’ll more than meet your CEU requirements by the end of two years.
