*A "Nursing CE" is the same a "Nursing Contact Hour". "Contact Hours" are often referred to as CEUs, which is technically not correct. CEUs are earned at a college or university and can be used to meet the nursing continuing education requirement for license renewal. "Contact Hours" are what nurses need to meet the continuing education requirement to renew their license.
