The West Virginia Board of Nursing requires all registered nurses to complete 12 hours of continuing education (CE) during each renewal period inclusive of required continuing education on substance abuse and the mental health of veterans.
On Feb. 27, 2018, and April 4, 2018, the Center for Education and Organizational Development (CEOD) is offering a Veterans Mental Health Course (8-10 a.m.) and Substance Abuse Update (10:15-11:30 a.m.) at the WVU Medicine Operations Support Center, CEOD Training Room 3.
