Attendees can obtain a maximum total of 26 continuing education credits from the ASCA 2020 Virtual Conference & Expo in nursing contact hours, Administrator Education Units (AEUs) and/or Infection Prevention Contact Hours (IPCHs).

Continuing education credits awarded for each session can be applied as nursing contact hours, AEUs and IPCHs simultaneously but are applied independently for each purpose, not added together and then applied. For example:

  • If an attendee joins the 60-minute session “Preparing for IT Failures” and completes an evaluation at the end of the session, they would be awarded 1.0 nursing contact hour and 1.0 AEU (if they are CASC certified) for a total of 1.0 continuing education credits for this session.
  • If an attendee joins the 75-minute session “Developing a Robust Infection Prevention Program for Your ASC” and completes an evaluation at the end of the session, they would be awarded 1.25 nursing contact hours, 1.25 AEUs (if they are CASC certified) and 1.25 IPCHs (if they are CAIP certified) for a total of 1.25 continuing education credits for this session.
  • If an attendee attends both sessions above, they would have a total of 2.25 continuing education credits to count toward the maximum total of 26 continuing education credits for the entire conference.
