Frequently Asked Questions

How does home-study CME & CE work?
Hatherleigh sends you home-study course materials containing CME or CE approved lessons.

Study these lessons and then answer the questions from each lesson by filling out the answer sheet at the end of each volume. Simply return this form to Hatherleigh for scoring via website, fax or mail. If you receive a score of at least 75% correct, Hatherleigh will send you a certificate awarding the credit hours designated for your program.

What organizations are you accredited with?
Hatherleigh is an accredited provider of AMA PRA Category 1 credit hours. We are approved by the ACCME, ABPN, American Psychological Association, NBCC, CRCC, CDMSC, CCMC, and NAADAC. Nursing activities are accepted by the ANCC.

Can I use these courses to obtain my license for the first time?
Our courses are designed and approved for renewing your license only.

Is there a deadline for course completion?
Yes! All of our courses should be completed within a three-year period from the purchase date. Previously, we had not instituted a deadline for course completion. However, accreditation and regulation changes occur and to ensure that you earn the maximum amount of credit for your course, we have instituted a three-year period for completion. Your certificate will be the date your quiz is processed in our office. (Note: Directions in Psychiatry subscribers should refer to the CME information page in their program for the preliminary expiration date of volume.)

Who should take your courses?
Any healthcare professional who want to keep up-to-date on the latest drug and clinical research, and those seeking high quality CME & CE programs to receive credit or contact hours for re-licensure.
