ANCC Accreditation distinguishes organizations that demonstrate quality and excellence in the curriculum design and delivery of continuing nursing education

Oakland University’s School of Nursing has achieved accreditation by American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC).

 

ANCC Accreditation distinguishes organizations that demonstrate quality and excellence in the curriculum design and delivery of continuing nursing education (CNE).

Accredited organizations, like Oakland University School of Nursing, meet comprehensive, evidenced-based criteria to ensure CNE activities are effectively planned, implemented and evaluated. Nurses in Michigan and around the country can gain access to the highest caliber of education to meet certification or licensure requirements, which in turn contributes to improved health care outcomes.

 

Judy Didion, dean and lead nurse planner, is excited about the accreditation award. “We are so proud to be recognized by ANCC for our commitment to quality nursing education, continuous improvement and lifelong learning. ANCC accreditation gives nurses assurance that by choosing Oakland University School of Nursing, they will receive the best CNE available.”

 

ANCC Accreditation is a voluntary, peer review process intended to strengthen and sustain the quality and integrity of continuing nursing education, making it worthy of public confidence. Accrediting organizations, like ANCC, assess providers of continuing nursing education to ensure they meet rigorous global standards established by ANCC.

 

Continuing education activities will be shared on the Oakland University School of Nursing website. For more information, contact Amy Johnson at johnson2@oakland.edu
