Nurse practitioners and CNSs need 75 contact hours in order to renew ANCC certification. 25 of those 75 hours must be pharmacotherapy contact hours.

Med-Challenger NP and Med-Challenger ENP now provide 45.7 and 70.4 ANCC Pharmacotherapy contact hours respectively, more than enough to meet the continuing career needs of nurse practitioners and clinical nurse specialists.
