Please note: All home studies are available for contact hours that are designed to fulfill Minnesota Board of Nursing criteria for continuing education. Most home studies are also designed to fulfill criteria for renewing nursing certification with the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). If you start a Post-test and close out of the test - you can not go back into the test where you left off. You will have to start it over again. Frequently Asked Questions about Contact Hours.
