Welcome to DDNA U!


 2016 Annual Conference Continuing Education

DDNA’s 2016 Annual Education Conference offers exceptional continuing education in intellectual and developmental disabilities nursing.  The full conference offers a total of 21 hours of continuing education for those attending all conference sessions.  The continuing education credit was approved by the Ohio Board of Nursing approver unit of the Ohio Department of Developmental Disabilities.

You may use Continuing Education (CE) credits earned at the DDNA Annual Education Conference toward your IDD nursing certification renewal and also toward your nursing relicensure.  While state Boards of Nursing typically accept CE accredited by other Board of Nursing, but please check with your nursing board to verify continuing education requirements.

The conference CE certificates will be available after the conference (beginning May 13th).  To obtain your CE certificates, log in and select the “Session Evaluations” link in the “Conference” drop-down at the top of this page. You can evaluate the sessions you attended and print out your CE certificates.


Very Important:  CE certificates will be available for print only through June 30, 2016.  Per accreditation standards, CE certificates cannot be made available after June 30th – either online or from the DDNA office.

If you miss the date for submitting your session evaluations, you can still print out “certificates of completion,” which may or may not be accepted by your state for relicensure purposes. A certificate of completion will be accepted by DDNA for CDDN or DDC recertification purposes.


Member-only free I/DD Education

Additional courses are currently being developed and will be made available as they are accredited and approved.

Notice: The previously-available “free” continuing education courseware is no longer available. The courses were developed by the previous management company, which has restricted “free” access to the courseware for DDNA members.

DDNA and its Board of Directors apologize for the challenge this creates for members. We are working as quickly as possible to create new continuing education courses, which will be made available to members – without charge – as soon as the courses are approved.
