About: For your CME activities that are approved for AAFP Prescribed credit, the ANCC and the AANPCB do accept our Prescribed credit. Therefore, nurses participating in that education would still be able to benefit from the CME activity with AAFP Prescribed credit. 

The learner would have to contact the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) or the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners Certification Board (AANPCB) directly to find out how those organizations want to report Prescribed credit.

If a nurse reports credit to a different organization than ANCC or AANPCB, then they’d have to reach out to that organization directly to find out whether it accepts AAFP CME credit.

AAFP Prescribed credit is accepted by the American Medical Association as equivalent to AMA PRA Category 1 Credit™ toward the AMA Physician's Recognition Award.

When applying for the AMA PRA, Prescribed credit earned must be reported as Prescribed credit, not as Category 1.

AAFP-certified CME Activities for American Osteopathic Association Credit                                                             CME activities approved for AAFP credit are recognized by the AOA as equivalent to AOA Category 2 credit.
