ASPEN's educational programs and resources are designed to support interdisciplinary
health care professionals seeking to assess, augment, or confirm their
knowledge of clinical nutrition and nutrition support both in clinical practice
and research settings. Many of these programs offer continuing education (CE )
credit for physicians, dietitians, nurses and pharmacists.
Programs Offering CE Credit
In support of improving patient care, The American Society for Parenteral and Enteral Nutrition (ASPEN) is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.
ASPEN, Provider AM005, is a Continuing Professional Education (CPE) Accredited Provider with the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR).
ASPEN is approved as a provider of continuing nursing education by the California Board of Nursing, provider number CEP3970.
ASPEN's continuing education programs also offer AMA PRA Category 1™ Credits.
Claiming CE credit and CE Transcripts
You can submit for credit and track earned CE
credits for ASPEN educational programming in ASPEN's eLearning Center. The only
exception is the Self-Assessment Program, where the CE credit is tracked within
Pharmacist CPE Monitor
ACPE and the National Association of Boards of Pharmacy (NABP) have developed a continuing pharmacy education (CPE) tracking service, CPE Monitor that authenticates and store data for completed CPE units received by
pharmacists and pharmacy technicians from ACPE-accredited providers. ASPEN must collect certain data on all
pharmacists to submit to the CPE monitor for tracking of earned CE
credits. Without this information,
pharmacists will not have documentation of CE credit earned with ASPEN. Please log in to the ASPEN website then click your name in the upper right corner to access the "Edit my Profile" option.
