Note: There is an additional charge of $5.00 per course fee added to handle processing, shipping and handling.

    Q. Through whom are the courses accredited?

    A. All of our courses are approved for nurses by the state of Florida, provider number NCE 3236 and by the state of California, provider number CEP 11921.

    A. Each state differs in CE requirements and the allowable online amount of hours. Please check with your state board for more information. Contact information for your state is provided on the state board links on left hand side of this page. Click on Nursing State Boards or Respiratory State Boards, your state and the contact information will be shown.

    Q. Can I take the same course two years in a row?

    A. No. Since many states do not accept contact hours for the same course two years in a row, our system only allows you to take the course after two years and 1 month.

    Q. What if I get logged off or I have to leave the computer in the middle of a test?

    A. If you lose your internet connection during a test or must stop during the test, you will need to log back into the course and begin the posttest again. Answers are not saved until you click the submit button at the end of the test. Once you have registered and paid for a course, you have access to that course and test for one year.

    A. Yes. You may retake the test as often as necessary to receive a passing score at no added cost.

    A. You may generate your own certificate online to be printed at your location, or we can send you a certificate through the mail. You will find information on generating your certificate under Certificate Information.

    Q. What time zone is used when posting the test results?

    A. MedWay's server uses Eastern Standard Time, therefore all test scores are recorded at that time. If you are on Pacific time and take your test at midnight on December 31, it will be recorded as January 1 at 2am.

    A. If for any reason you are unsatisfied with the course(s) you have purchased, call us, or email your request to MedWay within 30 days of purchase.
