The National Kidney Foundation Council of Nephrology Social Workers, provider #1014, is approved as a provider for social work continuing education by the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB), phone: 1.800.225.6880, through the Approved Continuing Education (ACE) program. The National Kidney Foundation Council of Nephrology Social Workers maintains responsibility for the program.

Social Workers will receive 29.0 continuing education clock hours for participating in this activity.

This activity is pending approval with the New York State Education Department (SED).

Conference registrants are responsible for making sure their state accepts the ASWB ACE provider as sufficient for CEUs, or if they need to do anything additional to independently receive state CEUs.

Note: Acquiring 29.0* contact hours requires continuous participation from Thursday morning through Sunday morning. Many participants opt for periodic breaks, which make their credit hours somewhat less. Additional credits are provided for courses requiring separate registration.
