Earn contact hours from attending or completing UW joint providers learning activities.

How to get a certificate

UW Continuing Nursing Education (UWCNE) awards contact hours for activities provided in partnership with other UW units. Participants in these activities are given instructions on how to claim contact hours and download a certificate. Claiming contact hours requires 1) having or creating an ACCOUNT here at UWCNE, 2) adding the activity to your cart and 3), if applicable, paying a small recording fee. You can then print your certificate as often as you wish. Contact hours records are maintained for six years.


  • Refer to the instructions you received at the activity (or in a confirmation email).
  • SEARCH for the activity by title.
  • Check the list of jointly-provided activities below.
