Under the guidelines set by ABTC, we are able to grant recognition to programs that meet established standards based on predetermined criteria. Approval assures participants that programs meet professional continuing education standards, and provides participants with continuing education credit for:

  • Renewal of RN licensure

  • Re-certification requirements for Certified Procurement and Clinical Transplant Coordinators and Transplant Nurses

  • Institutional continuing education requirements

Processing Timeline

Completed applications, documentation, and fees must be received at least 60 days prior to the date of the presentation. Materials sent by fax and express mail will still require 60 days for processing, from the date of receipt. Applications must be received before the program is presented; retroactive credits are not awarded. Additional late fees will be charged for any projects that require approval 30-59 days prior to the event start date. No approvals will be granted for activities that will begin in 29 days or less.

Notification of program approval and the number of contact hours to be awarded to the registrants will be emailed from ITNS office to the applicant email address stated on the application. Notification by mail is also available. It is your responsibility to inform ITNS of any changes to your email and/or mailing address.
