CPC Compliance Process

Every four years you will be due to apply for Renewal of Certification. The NBCRNA will notify you by email when the renewal window opens, typically five months prior to the end of your 4-year cycle. You can then log in to the NBCRNA portal to begin your CPC Application.

For CPC compliance, you will need:

  • 60 Class A credits and 40 Class B credits (Note: you can use extra Class A credits over the required 60 towards the Class B requirement).
  • Based on your progression through the CPC Program, Core Modules may be required.
  • The CPC Assessment component is required every other 4-year CPC cycle.
