There is Category1 and Category2. It sounds like states will often set a minimum total number of credits across categories, plus set a minimum number of credits that are Category1. Category2 is "SelfDirected".
- in addition some states have extra requirements like "10 of those credits must be in Risk Management of patient safety".
