ASPEN 2022 CONTENT:   We will once again provide BPS- approved CE credit for some of the sessions during the ASPEN22 Conference.  ASPEN will provide ACPE CE credit for these sessions being presented during the virtual conference.  For anyone who participates in the virtual conference and is interested in receiving BCNSP recertification credit for these sessions, the post-tests will be available on the BCNSP Recertification Website approximately 4-5 weeks following the conference.  An email message will be sent to notify you when the post-tests become available, so be sure to check your spam folder in case it ends up there.  In addition, we will be adding these sessions to our site as enduring programming during the summer months.  In this way, those of you that were unable to participate in the virtual conference will still have access to these activities which will be BPS-approved and ACPE-accredited by Purdue.
