Distance Learning

Live courses that are presented using distance learning technologies, such as teleconferences or satellite programs, must be covered by an approved Iowa provider if they are attended at a site within Iowa. There are no exceptions to this requirement.

However, courses taken as self-study over the Internet, are acceptable if they are either covered by an approved Iowa provider, granted special approval, are approved by the ANA (or ANCC), the NLN, the NFLPN, NAPNES, or if they are approved by a board of nursing in another mandatory continuing education state.
