Adverse Weather Policy
In the event of adverse weather a Center for Lifelong Learning program will be cancelled if the University of North Carolina or the conference venue is closed. If the program is cancelled due to inclement weather, every attempt will be made to reschedule and your registration fee will be applied to the rescheduled date. Any travel expenses that may have been incurred cannot be refunded.
Because it is unusual for the University of North Carolina or conference venues in this area to be closed, it is more likely that an event will be held at times when the University’s adverse weather status is designated as a Condition 1 (“normal” weather conditions) or Condition II (more severe weather). Condition III is when there is extremely bad weather and we would need to cancel a conference. Please see a description of these levels at http://gazette.unc.edu/2013/01/08/adverse-weather-policy-always-in-effect-noted-by-three-conditions/ . Information about current conditions is available on the Adverse Weather and Emergency Phone Line, 919-843-1234, as well as on the UNC homepage .
If the event is held, but weather conditions prohibit your safe travel so you are unable to attend, we unfortunately cannot refund your registration fee. Please contact us so that we may send you a copy of any handouts and so that we may notify you should we be able to have any video recordings made of presentations (pending presenter consent and access to facility equipment).
Please check radio and television station’s websites or radios in the area for an announcement about University or venue closures. If the program is cancelled you may call our office at 919-966-3638 to hear a voice message. We will also try to post any cancellation announcements on our website at http://nursing.unc.edu/lifelong

In accordance with the ANCC accreditation standards, everyone involved in the planning or presenting this educational activity will be required to disclose any relevant financial relationships, or the lack thereof, with commercial interests in the healthcare industry, and this information will be made available to participants at the start of the activity. Participants will be informed of any commercial support related to the educational activity, and they will be informed that accredited status does not implay endorsement by the provider or ANCC of any commercial products displayed in conjunction with an activity.

Parking On Campus
For programs located in Carrington Hall participants need to park in the Dogwood parking deck. The Dogwood Deck is located on Manning Drive across from the hospital. If you are a UNC Employee you must park in your regular designated place. If, as a UNC employee, you park in the Dogwood Deck you will get a ticket.
Most daylong programs are held at The William and Ida Friday Center for continuing education. The below link will shows a map of where you may park at the Friday Center.
You will now need a parking permit when parked in the visitor’s lot. We will send you a link to the parking permit that you can print out before the conference. Please keep a look out for this email; it will be sent closer to the conference date.
Can I get CME credit for your courses?
The School of Nursing at The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
For physicians who need CME credit, please note that we are NOT an accredited provider of AMA PRA Category 1 Credit. The AMA allows physicians to self-designate non-AMA-accredited educational activities for AMA PRA Category 2 Credit. These credits may not be certified by an organization, and our educational activities may not be advertised as eligible for these credits. However, individual physicians may evaluate for themselves whether participation in a learning activity meets the AMA’s requirements for AMA PRA Category 2 Credit. These requirements include that a learning activity: comply with AMA’s definition of CME, comply with AMA ethical opinions, are not promotional, and that “a physician finds to be a worthwhile learning experience related to his/her practice.” The Center for Lifelong Learning will provide you with a certificate of attendance you may use for your records if you choose to self-designate our course for AMA PRA Category 2 Credit.
