Continuing Nursing Education (CNE) consists of various educational activities that maintain and develop the knowledge, skills and professional practice of nurses / midwives.
Nurses / Midwives need to maintain their competencies through continuing nursing education in order to provide safe patient care and to keep pace with advances and innovations in healthcare.
SNB has established standard criteria to help nurses/midwives monitor their CNE activities. Nurses / Midwives can receive CNE units for CNE Activities approved by SNB.
A CNE unit is defined as a recognised unit of education awarded to nurses/midwives for participating in organised professional programme and publication of nursing paper. Professional programmes include nursing / medical / healthcare-related course, conference, scientific meeting, seminar, workshop and in-service lectures.
CNE units are accumulated on a yearly basis, from 01 September of the current year to 31 August of the following year to coincide with the renewal of practising certificates. This period is called the Qualifying Period (QP).
Only the CNE report of current and previous QP will be available for access upon login. Nurses/Midwives are recommended to print their CNE report at the end of every QP for own reference.
