Announcing Category F - Precepting

March 13, 2023

The Dermatology Nurse Practitioner Certification Board announces an additional category for recertification, Category F Precepting.  Now DCNPs can recertify using their hours spent precepting NP students with Contact Hours towards the minimum of 60 continuing education credits required to recertify.

For those recertifying in 2023 or later, be sure to upload the letter from the university stating your name, school name, number of hours spent precepting, etc  into CEBroker once you receive it.

A maximum of 15 Contact Hours, or 120 precepting hours, can be used in Category F.  The calculation for converting precepting hours to Contact Hours can be found on the application or in your CE Broker account.

 If you have not already activated your free CEBroker account, please do so ASAP. Please direct any questions to
