Earn CME credits for nurses and nurse practitioners while researching clinical questions with UpToDate®*

The premier solution for internet-based, point-of-care CME

 Subscribe risk-free

In your fast-paced work environment, time and resources are limited. However, it’s critical to keep up with the latest medical developments and earn CME. Many CME courses for nurse practitioners, RN continuing education (CE) courses, and nursing continuing education courses require you to take time away from the office, but learning should be integral to your workflow and not additional time outside of your daily schedule.


UpToDate is an online, physician-authored, evidence-based resource for medical knowledge and clinical decision support. The content is continuously updated and presents a comprehensive synthesis of evidence followed by recommendations that can be implemented at the point of care, so you don’t have to take a CE course for nurse practitioners or nurses online or attend a live CME program to earn nursing continuing education credits or nurse practitioner continuing education credits.


Using UpToDate can help you fulfill requirements for licensing

UpToDate offers a variety of CE for nurse practitioners and nurses to fulfill licensing and certification requirements. When you subscribe, you can earn credits simply by searching for answers to your clinical questions — either on-the-go or in your office — at no extra cost and no additional testing required. It’s like getting free nurse or nurse practitioner continuing education every time you search UpToDate, rather than paying for CE courses for NPs or nurses.

You can reduce or eliminate time spent on CME online courses, conferences, and other CME programs and activities. Our CME redemption workflow automatically keeps track of your CME credits, including continuing education credits for nurses or nurse practitioners and allows you to print a credit certificate for up to two years with an active UpToDate subscription right from your computer or mobile device.

UpToDate is accredited and recognized as a resource for continuing medical education for nurses, CE for NPs, and other medical professionals by colleges, associations, and authorities from around the world.
