The Hawaii Society of Naturopathic Physicians has established a process for approval of CEs from additional organizations, as way to get CEs approved in advance of license renewal submission that otherwise would not be acceptable. The HSNP worked with the Board of Naturopathic Medicine throughout development of this new process. In no way does it go against the Board of Naturopathic Medicine’s criteria but complements it. Further, we have confirmed that CEs approved by HSNP will be acceptable to the Board of Naturopathic Medicine for the purposing of licensing renewal.
