Texas Nurses Association/Foundation Provider Unit is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.

Most states recognize contact hours awarded by ANCC accredited providers. However, please note that there are a few exceptions. States such as California and Iowa only recognize continuing nursing education or continuing education (CNE or CE) activities from agencies that are considered approved providers by their state boards of nursing. As criteria varies, please contact the Board of Nursing in your state with any questions regarding reporting of contact hours as related to licensure requirements.

Cancer Education for Every Nurse

In the U.S., cancer is the second-leading cause of death. Cancers that can be detected earlier by screening account for about half of all new cancer cases (American Cancer Society, 2014).

NOEP provides evidence-based continuing education to nurses on cancer prevention, detection, treatment, and survivorship. Our goal is to educate all nurses to create changes in nursing practice.

We partner with expert nurse clinicians and faculty from leading academic institutions to develop cutting edge programs, and conduct post-education evaluation and outcome measurement follow up to ensure those programs are effective. 

NOEP is a nonprofit project of the Texas Nurses Association/Foundation.
