Obtain Approval for CNE Activities

A new online CNE application process was introduced in January 2016. This process streamlines the needed forms, provides tips on what is required in a specific area, and helps ensure that your application is complete before you hit the "submit" button. Forgot something? No problem! You can log back in to your online application as often as you want to make corrections or add forms prior to submitting it for review.

Starting a New Application? ~ Application Checklist

Due to the extensive review/correction process, it is very important to submit your application for review at least 45 calendar days prior to the event date to be considered an “on time” application. Any requests received 30-44 calendar days prior to the event date will be subject to a late fee (3x the original fee). Applications received 29 or fewer calendar days before the activity start date will not be accepted.

When starting a new application, please have the following documents ready before you begin the online application process:

  • Credit card that you will use for payment.
  • Conflict of Interest Form(s) (updated 4/12/16) – Two Conflict of Interest Forms are part of the online application: one for the nurse planner and and one for the content expert. If you have additional presenters and/or planning committee members, each must complete a Conflict of Interest Form (provided below).
  • Education Planning Table(s) (updated 4/12/16) – The Education Planning Table for the first presenter is part of the online application. If you have additional presenters, each must complete an Education Planning Table (provided below).
  • Promotional Flyers
  • Disclosure Declaration Memorandum & Evaluation Form (updated 4/12/16)
  • Commercial Support Agreement Form - If commercial support is just paying for a vending table, then a Commercial Support Agreement form is not required. Please still list the vendors on the Disclosure Declaration Memorandum & Evaluation Form with a note that they are simply vending in the exhibit hall for your program.
