Starting in 2005, Naturopathic Doctor News and Review (NDNR) is the leading clinical information resource for naturopathic physicians in North America. It serves as a dynamic voice for the advancement of naturopathic medicine by informing and educating physicians in the recent developments of the practice of natural medicine. NDNR includes current protocols, practice management, business development, marketing, clinical research, news and more.
On a monthly basis, NDNR covers the practice of naturopathic medicine and includes the products and services that natural medicine physicians use and prescribe. The content consists of articles written by practicing NDs for practicing NDs. Contributors also include the presidents of the accredited naturopathic universities, university department chairs, and leading doctors. Every issue theme covers pertinent case studies, clinical pearls and discussions on the usage of nutraceuticals, botanicals, IV and injection therapies, homeopathy and other naturopathic modalities.

Continuing Education FAQs Most of the questions regarding continuing education have to do with specific discrepancies on pre-approval of credits or the type of credits approved - CEU versus CME. These questions are fairly straight forward to answer for the naturopathic profession. While answers to questions of approval for other professions - chiropractors, nurses, acupuncturists, and MDs - largely depend on whether those professional boards recognize the ND license as an valid and accredited license in that state, or within that profession. For the MD profession, courses given by a licensed naturopath may be denied for CE simply because the presenter was a naturopath - in fact, this is how the continuing education requirements for MDs read.
ALL NDNR COURSES ARE PRESENTED AND FACILITATED BY LICENSED NATUROPATHIC PHYSICIANS AT A DOCTORAL LEVEL AND INTENDED TO BE SPECIFICALLY RELEVANT TO THE CLINICAL PRACTICE OF NATUROPATHY.
ALL NDNR COURSES HAVE BEEN SUBMITTED FOR CONTINUING EDUCATION APPROVAL THROUGH THE OREGON BOARD OF NATUROPATHIC MEDICINE (OBNM) AS WELL AS THE COLLEGE OF NATUROPATHS OF ONTARIO.
THE COURSES PROVIDED THROUGH NDNR MEET THE CONTINUING EDUCATION REQUIREMENTS OF MOST OF THE NATUROPATHIC REGULATORY BOARDS. IT IS STILL THE RESPONSIBILITY OF THE INDIVIDUAL PRACTITIONER TO KNOW THEIR BOARD’S LAWS AND TO INQUIRE WITH SAID BOARD IF THERE IS A DOUBT, ESPECIALLY IF YOU ARE LICENSED IN ANOTHER PROFESSION.
DO I HAVE TO GET MY CE CREDITS PRE-APPROVED? No! Yes! - It depends on what state you are licensed in. But first, keep in mind, if you are practicing in an unlicensed state (naturopaths), you don’t need to prove your continuing education. It may be a good idea to log your credits from the courses you take over the years, just in case you end up moving to a licensed state, or your state becomes licensed.
Many states don’t have a pre-approval process of their own, and have statements such as this, from New Hampshire’s regulatory law:
“For the purposes of this section an "approved continuing naturopathic medical education program" means a program designed to continue the education of the licensee in current developments, skills, procedures, or treatment in the licensee's field of practice, which has been certified by a national or state naturopathic medical society or college or university and approved by the board”
This allows for courses to be taken for continuing education if they have been approved by another regulatory body, a process called “reciprocity. For our purposes here reciprocity means that a board will acknowledge another state or professional regulatory organization (such as a college or association) previous approval of a continuing education course.
Alaska is the only licensed state that doesn’t mandate continuing education. Colorado - Does not provide pre-approval. Though, all courses taken through NDNR should meet requirements for Professional Development Activities (PDAs) if the course is relevant to your specific learning plan and goals. Montana - Does not provide pre-approval. Though, all courses taken through NDNR should meet CE requirements, as long as the course content falls within your scope of practice.
DOES MY BOARD HONOR CE CREDITS APPROVED FROM OBNM or CONO? The Oregon Board of Naturopathic Medicine (OBNM) does the entire naturopathic profession a great service by pre-approving of continuing education (CE) courses at no charge. The College of Naturopaths of Ontario (CONO) also does this. The application process involves submitting course documents, presenter CVs, as well as an OBNM specific application. Most licensed states recognize CE approved by the OBNM through a process referred to as “reciprocity.” Below is a list of all the states and provinces that recognize CE credits through reciprocity:
New Hampshire Maryland Connecticut Arizona District of Columbia Hawaii Kansas Maine Minnesota North Dakota Utah Vermont Washington
DO MY CE CREDITS COUNT IN CALIFORNIA? The process by which an organization goes through pre-approval of a CE course is quite expensive. In addition, California does place limitations on the number of CE units that may be completed online. The course content of all NDNR courses should meet the California requirements, except being approved by the CAND, or California Naturopathic Committee. If you would like to submit the course documents and presenter information for your own personal approval, NDNR will more than happily supply you with all you need. Please contact Node Smith - firstname.lastname@example.org.
DO MY CE CREDITS COUNT IN CANADA? Naturopathy is one of the few professions that shares licensing exams across the United States and Canada. Because of this, the reciprocity from the OBNM should suffice for most provinces, except Ontario, to which NDNR also submits long
