Nebraska Primary EyeCare Conference

Nebraska Primary EyeCare Conference, March 26-28 online!

The 2020 Nebraska Primary EyeCare Conference will be March 26-28 via an online platform. Doctors will have the opportunity to earn 17 hours of CE credits from nationally known speakers. ** These hours will be counted as live CE for your license renewal. **

The NOA has been in continuous communications with the Nebraska Board of Optometry, ARBO, and our scheduled speakers to ensure the courses will count as live in-person CE in an Interactive Distance learning format qualifying the education for licensing renewals.

This format means you must "attend" the online courses that you register to attend during the specified times listed on the schedule and registration form. Real-time interaction is the key to offering these courses as in-person events. Upon completion of the event, NOA will process submit attendance to ARBO so that you can receive the credits as soon as possible.

Registration is available here.

* Discounted registration prices are available for members of NOA and AOA. In special recognition of the national health emergency that is curtailing many optometric CE options around the county, NOA has also discounted its usual non-member registration fees for this conference.
