With additional tasks that we will be performing to accommodate our appointed role by BPS as we continue serving as the BCNSP CE Recertification Provider for the upcoming 7-year period, 2024-2030, along with the increase of inflation, since this is a 7-year commitment we will be increasing our annual subscription registration fee commencing on January 1, 2024.  Beginning on January 1, 2024 the price for the annual subscription will increase from $195 to $225.

ASPEN 2024 CONTENT:   We will once again provide BPS- approved CE credit for some of the sessions during the ASPEN24 Conference.  ASPEN will provide ACPE CE credit for these sessions being presented during the conference.  For anyone who participates in the conference and is interested in receiving BCNSP recertification credit for these sessions, the post-tests will be available on the BCNSP Recertification Website approximately 5-6 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 conference will still have access to these activities which will be BPS-approved and ACPE-accredited by Purdue.
