Education & CE Opportunities

Continuing Education Program Accreditation

Our CE program accreditation process provides a framework which ensures that programs being put on at the state and local level deliver innovative and informative education to healthcare professionals across multiple disciplines.  

AADE does not process CE program accreditation for continuing education programs developed by commercial entities, such as pharmaceutical and medical device companies.

Education for the Educator

CE Program Accreditation

Thank you for considering AADE for your continuing education needs. AADE is accredited by the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), the American Nurses Credentialing Center and the Commission on Accreditation (ANCC), the California Board of Registered Nursing (CBRN) and the Commission on Dietetic Registration (CDR).

*AADE is only eligible to offer credit from CDR to AADE CE activities and programs held by our approved Coordinating Body (CBs) and Local Networking Groups (LNGs) groups. CB’s and LNGs should visit My AADE Network for specific CE application documents.

External group (non CB/LNG) activities that are approved by AADE to offer CE can only award credit to their attendees through ACPE, ANCC, and CBRN not CDR. External groups applying for CE- please visit the link below in the section: CE Application and Required Documents.

CE Application & Required Documents

As you go through the application process, we will work with you to meet accreditation criteria and to provide high quality educational programs for diabetes educators. External groups (i.e. outside AADE not for profit groups, etc.) can apply for CE credit for Nursing and Pharmacists only. External groups cannot apply for dietitian credit through the CE Application process.
