The Missouri Nurses Association Continuing Education (CE) Provider Unit is responsible for providing CNE programs for the Association. The association provides a variety of CNE activities, including educational sessions at the biennial convention, advanced practice programs, and clinical sessions. Some of these CNE activities may be co-provided with other associations or organizations. The Missouri Nurses Association CE Provider Unit has been operational since 1978. It was accredited at that time by the American Nurses Association (ANA) and has maintained accreditation as a provider of continuing nursing education.


The Missouri Nurses Association is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.

The goals of the CE Provider Unit are updated during each biennium, and support the Missouri Nurses Association board of directors strategic plan. Progress of the goals is evaluated annually by the committee to ensure completion within the biennium. As a standing committee of the association, the CE Provider Unit Committee is expected to:

  • Advance the practice of nursing by disseminating new knowledge through MONA developed continuing education opportunities that meet the criteria established by the ANCC COA.
  • Provide a mechanism for verification of quality for continuing nursing education programs.
  • Encourage nurses to maintain and improve knowledge and skills of professional practice.
  • Foster availability and accessibility of continuing nursing education programs throughout the state.
  • Develop a total continuing education program for MONA.
