CE Pre-Approval via Reciprocity

What do you mean by CE Pre-Approval via Reciprocity?

Not every licensing board approves continuing education themselves. The board may not have the infrastructure in place to do so. Instead of approving CE themselves – they accept CE that has been approved by other licensing boards.

What should I know about CE Pre-Approval via Reciprocity?

It’s important to be familiar with your State’s or Province’s regulations around CE that is approved through reciprocity. Just because a course has been pre-approved by another licensing board doesn’t necessarily mean that it will be accepted by your licensing board. For example, Washington State accepts CE credits via reciprocity. However, even if there is a CE course on natural childbirth approved in another State, it would not be acceptable in Washington because natural childbirth is not within the scope of practice in Washington.
