ANCC accreditation demonstrates a commitment to delivering high-quality continuing nursing professional development.
Signet Health was granted accreditation for nursing continuing professional development (NCPD) in September from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). This accreditation demonstrates our commitment to using evidence-based criteria when developing high-quality educational activities that promote the professional growth of nurses.
With this accreditation, Signet Health joins an influential global community of accredited organizations that demonstrate the importance of creating a positive impact on both nurses and the delivery of patient care.
NCPD accreditation from ANCC elevates educational offerings that benefit our nurses, and the patients and communities we serve, 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 strengthen 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 ANCC standards provide organizations with a structured, evidence-based framework to design and implement NCPD activities. The development of quality outcomes ensures that accredited organizations continuously evaluate processes and their impact on the professional development of nurses.
