Continuing Education

The Gulf Coast Elder Abuse Conference is proud to offer Continuing Education credit to several disciplines, most of which are authorized through a national organization.  Although national organizations have a broader reach, not all states accept them so it is incumbent on the attendee to verify that his/her state accepts the authorization offered through the conference.  The following information reflects the applications that have either been approved or are in process.

Each day of the conference will have up to six hours of Continuing Education credit available, depending on profession.  There will be 24 class hours on each of the first two days of the event, and ten class hours on the third day.

NURSES – Approved

This continuing nursing education activity is being jointly planned and provided by International Association of Forensic Nurses and the Gulf Coast Elder Abuse Conference.
