The Fields of Medicine and Science Never Stop Moving Forward -

and Neither Should Physicians.
Physicians spend four years in medical school and three to five years in residency training. For the rest of your career, you rely on CME as one of the support systems that helps you drive improvements in practice and optimize the care, health, and wellness of patients. Whether you work in clinical care, research, healthcare administration, executive leadership, or other areas of medicine, CME is designed to be relevant to your needs, practice-based, and effective.

Participation in accredited CME helps you meet requirements for maintenance of licensure, maintenance of certification, credentialing, membership in professional societies, and other professional privileges.  The NMA is dedicated to meeting your educational needs.

Please contact our CME Director Meghan Johnson at with any questions you may have.


COVID-19 Continuing Competency

The Governor of the State of Nebraska announced that the COVID 19 State of Emergency expires 6/30/2021 (midnight). License types that were deferred per Executive Order 20-10 will have their expiration dates extended to 10/31/2021 and must be renewed by that date.

What about CE waivers for renewals and reinstatements?
The continuing education waiver for circumstances beyond a licensees control will remain an option after the expiration of the COVID-19 State of Emergency. As it was during the emergency, if a licensee selects this waiver, they must provide documentation to the Department which outlines the circumstances beyond the licensees control that prohibited them from obtaining continuing education.

What about the Department’s statement regarding not enforcing the maximum amount of CE hours obtained by home study or online methods?
The Department recognizes that continuing education is obtained through a variety of outlets, not always located in the State of Nebraska. And, locations outside of the State of Nebraska may still be observing COVID-19 state of emergency precautions. Because of this, the Department will continue to be as flexible as possible with those professions whose renewal period was impacted by the COVID-19 State of Emergency.
