Frequently Asked Questions About TCHP

  1. What does TCHP stand for?
    TCHP is short for Twin Cities Health Professionals. Our full, official name is Twin Cities Health Professionals Education Consortium. We abbreviated the name because healthcare professionals love abbreviations.

  2. Where are you located?
    We are located at Hennepin County Medical Center in O3.NAS until the end of September (then we are closing).

  3. Can I e-mail something to you?
    Sure. Our e-mail address is tchp@hcmed.org

  4. How many contact hours do I need to renew my license?
    If you are a nurse in Minnesota, RNs need 24 contact hours every 2 years and LPNs need 12 contact hours every 2 years. We suggest you consult the Minnesota Board of Nursing for more information on license renewal. If you are not a nurse, contact your state board for information:

  5. How do I know if I am a certified nurse?
    Experienced nurses sometimes choose to go through a certification process that involves a lot of studying, paying fees, and taking an exam. The bottom line is, if you are a certified nurse you know it--it is above and beyond what is required to become a registered nurse.
  6. Can I copy and use your stuff for a class I want to teach?
    All of TCHP's educational materials are copyrighted. You must obtain permission to duplicate/use any of our home studies or class materials. If you would like to purchase duplication rights for a particular home study, contact us at tchp@hcmed.org
