How to Claim Credit for an Activity via Texting

Before claiming credit, please ensure you have a profile set up in CloudCME.

A distinct code will be provided for each accredited activity and will be given or emailed to you after successful completion of the entire activity. Text this numeric code to (855) 776-6263.

Unless otherwise stated, your code must be texted within the time periods below:

CNE (nursing) activities 24 hours
RSS (grand rounds, MMI, etc.) 24 hours
Live Courses 30 days
Quiz Time activities 14 days


If the event is an RSS, upon texting, your credit will immediately be available on your official transcript and can be viewed or printed at any time at

If the event is a course, online course, or Quiz Time activity, the course evaluation must be completed before credit will appear on your transcript.  You may also print your certificate after completing the evaluation.

If variable credit is available (for some live courses), this will be claimed on the course evaluation.
