SCHOOL OF NURSING EARNS ACCREDITATION FROM AMERICAN NURSES CREDENTIALING CENTER
Northeastern University School of Nursing is pleased to announce it 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 Northeastern University School of Nursing meet comprehensive, evidenced-based criteria to ensure CNE activities are effectively planned, implemented and evaluated.
Nurses, including School Nurses that take courses with the Northeastern University School Health Academy (NEUSHA) within the School of Nursing, now gain access to the highest caliber of education to meet certification or licensure requirements, which in turn contributes to improved health care outcomes.
“We are proud to be recognized by ANCC for our commitment to continuous improvement and the highest quality continuing education for nurses,” says Nancy Hanrahan, Dean & Professor of the School of Nursing. ANCC accreditation gives nurses assurance that by choosing Northeastern 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.
