Certified nurses need contact hours designed to meet the criteria set forth by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) and have their contact hours calculated using a 60 minute contact hour formula. There are other health care professionals and nursing certification organizations that also use a 60 minute/contact hour formula.
