The all-electronic evaluation and continuing education (CE) credit claim form process introduced at the 2012 Annual Meeting will be even easier and more efficient this year.
What’s different this year? Just one scan!
Last year you had to have your badge scanned before entering each session so your attendance could be recorded. This year, THE ONLY SCAN YOU WILL NEED takes place at the registration area when you first pick up your materials. NO scanning will be required at the entrance to any education conference room or activity.
- If you are preregistered for the meeting, your registration envelope will have a barcode that will be scanned when you check in and pick up your meeting packet.
- If you are not preregistered and are registering onsite, the barcode on your printed badge will be scanned at the time of registration and payment.
So, how do I claim my CE credits?
At the end of each day’s sessions you will receive an email with a link to begin evaluating your sessions and claiming credits. Click the link to access each day’s educational session evaluations, which will become available after the activities are completed. You won’t be able to complete your evaluation or claim CE credit before the actual presentation/activity. We recommend that attendees evaluate the meeting and claim credit for each session attended on a daily basis throughout the meeting. If this is not possible, you can complete all of your evaluations after the meeting ends.
When you complete each evaluation, you will be able to review, verify, and attest to attendance for that particular session so that you can claim your CE credit. CE certificates will be immediately available for printing as soon as you complete all of your evaluations. New this year is an additional page for your certificate that documents each of the educational sessions you claimed as CE credit. These documents (the certificate and the session list) can be emailed and/or printed at the time of completion, and access to these items will remain open to you following the meeting.
Together, these documents will greatly increase your ability to meet various regulatory agencies’ documentation requirements. As an added convenience, your CE credits will be automatically transferred to your AANA CE transcript.
No laptop, smartphone, or tablet—no problem!
Even If you don’t bring a personal computer device to the meeting, you can still complete your evaluations onsite using the free computer access at the AANA Cyber Café in the Registration area on Monday and Tuesday during the meeting.
What if I want to change sessions?
If you have registered for a certain session and wish to make a change, you may attend any of the sessions when space is available without going to the Registration Desk. If the session is full, please give priority for seating to those who have preregistered for the session. When it is time to evaluate and claim your CE credit, simply select the session you attended, complete the evaluation and claim your credit. No other changes are necessary.
Admission to the educational sessions (to earn your CEs) requires a badge. Be sure to wear your badge throughout the meeting. There will be a $10 charge to replace lost badges.
