Controlled Substance CME Requirements

Controlled Substance CME Requirements

Please note: If you have received a packet in the mail from InforMed regarding "2020 Nebraska Medical Licensure Program CME Renewal", this is not from the NMA or DHHS. It is solicitation and the education provided by the NMA & DHHS is free.

All physicians that prescribe controlled substances are required to have 3.0 of opioid prescribing CME completed by the 2020 licensure renewal date.  0.5 hours of this must be on the PDMP and is due to LB731 (full bill located here):

LICENSURE RENEWAL
On the renewal form, physicians will be asked if they prescribe controlled substances and to attest that the CME requirements have been completed.  Please note the 3.0 hours required are included in the 50.0 total CME needed for licensure renewal.
