Georgia Nurses Association Achieves ANCC Accreditation for Nursing Continuing Professional Development    

Atlanta – The Georgia Nurses Association (GNA) was granted accreditation for nursing continuing professional development (NCPD) in May from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). This accreditation demonstrates GNA’s commitment to using evidence-based criteria when developing high-quality educational activities that promote the professional growth of nurses and improve patient outcomes.

NCPD accreditation from ANCC elevates educational offerings by:

  • Promoting the highest professional standards to sustain effective strategies that improve professional nursing practice.
  • Improving curricula for nurses to provide evidence-based education that strengthens professional development programs.
  • Increasing credibility to adhere to evidence-based, global standards that deliver quality, professional education. 
  • Expanding visibility to be included among other accredited organizations that are listed in a nationwide, searchable directory.
  • Increasing demand to offer continuing professional development contact hours that are essential to building professional portfolios and maintaining certification and accreditation from ANCC and other licensing boards and regulatory bodies.

 

The ANCC Accreditation Model is based on the original Donabedian framework of structure, process, and outcome measures to evaluate quality. The development of quality outcomes ensures that accredited organizations continuously evaluate processes and their impact on the professional development of nurses.

As an Accredited Approver, GNA joins an influential global community of accredited organizations. For more information on the ANCC NCPD Accreditation Program, visit www.nursingworld.org/ncpd.
