Washington State CE Requirements
As of January 1, 2021, naturopathic physicians in Washington State are required to obtain a minimum of 60 continuing medical education credits every two years. Of these 60 credits, 15 must be in pharmacology. During every 2-year cycle, naturopathic physicians must obtain at least 20 of the 60 required credits from well-established and recognized naturopathic organizations, including the Washington Association of Naturopathic Physicians (WANP), the American Association of Naturopathic Physicians (AANP), the North American Naturopathic Continuing Education Accreditation Council (NANCEAC), and accredited naturopathic medical schools. During each 2-year cycle, Washington-licensed NDs can obtain up to 40 of the 60 required credits from non-ND and some other state and specialty ND organizations that provide high quality continuing medical education. Up to 5 CE credits per 2-year cycle can be self-guided or non-clinical in nature. Read the full law here.
