Volunteer State Health Plan’s (VSHP) clinical education program has received national accreditation by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) as a provider of continuing nursing education.
“ANCC accreditation is a positive move forward in the nursing professional development and continuing education market,” said Fran Martini, VSHP director of clinical programs. “It simply recognizes the excellent instruction provided to our nurses each day as we prepare them to serve our members. It’s a reflection of our commitment to providing the highest quality continuing education.”
The ANCC’s system for accreditation of continuing nursing education is a voluntary peer-reviewed process. An institution, organization, agency, or entity submits to an in-depth analysis of its continuing nursing education program to determine the capacity of the organization to provide quality continuing education activities for nurses. VSHP Clinical Education’s ANCC accreditation status, which includes annual reviews, is valid for up to six years.
ANCC is the largest and most prominent nurse credentialing organization in the United States.
