Nursing Continuing Education

The DODD is approved by the Ohio Board of Nursing to provide Continuing Education (CE) for nurses. The forms supplied by the DODD must be completed according to the specific directions provided. Original forms and two copies must be submitted at least 6 weeks in advance:


Karen Hill
RN, BSN, CDDN
Portage County Board of DD
Portage Industries
7008 State Route 88
Ravenna Ohio 44266
Phone: 330-296-8714
Fax: 330-297-8990
karenh@portagedd.org


Along with these forms you must also submit a copy of the brochure or an outline of the presentation, a copy of the evaluation that will be used, and a copy of the certificate you intend to provide at the completion of the program (see links below for forms).  Please note the instructions on page two of the forms are very specific about what must be included on the certificate. After Karen receives these, she will confirm the submission by sending you a postcard.  If anything is missing from your packet, it will be noted on this postcard.  The application will not be processed until all required material is received.  She will call you with an approval number once the review is completed.

After you have completed the CE program, return to Karen a copy of the sign-in sheet and a summary of the evaluations that were completed.  These are necessary to satisfy record-keeping requirements for the Ohio Board of Nursing.  If you fail to complete this step, you will risk losing the privilege to submit future requests for approval.
