As a travel nurse, sometimes staying on track with your continuing education can take a back seat to all of your exciting adventures on the road.  At Supplemental Health Care, we understand that when you are on a travel assignment, you may not be thinking about your CE requirements, so we have made it easy for you.

Maintaining SLP Certification with Continuing Education

Authored by Editor on

Speech-Language Pathologists know that to maintain their certification through American Speech-Hearing Association (ASHA), they will have to stay current with Continuing Education Units (CEUs).  Each SLP is required to earn 3.0 CEUs every three years to retain a Certificate of Clinical Competence.  Regarding hours of study, that equates to about 10 hours per year.  To keep it manageable, it is recommended that SLP’s break it down yearly, rather than have to try and fit in 30 hours of study in year three.  Fortunately, there are many ways to conveniently earn CEUs, without breaking the bank.
