Eau Claire, WI (PRWEB) June 17, 2008
PESI HealthCare, a nationwide provider of continuing education for nurses and other healthcare professionals, recently gained accreditation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center.
Accreditation by the ANCC provides assurance to the public, in particular to nursing and health care professionals, that an organization has been found to meet national standards, requirements and criteria. PESI HealthCare is one of only two organizations in the state of Wisconsin to hold ANCC accreditation, the other being the University of Wisconsin - Madison.
Accredited providers of continuing education give nursing professionals the assurance that they receive quality continuing education activities as prescribed by ANCC's rigorous accreditation process.
ANCC accreditation is recognized by most state nurse licensing boards. Iowa and California are the only two states that do not recognize ANCC certification. PESI HealthCare is an approved provider of continuing education in both Iowa and California.
According to the ANCC, the benefits of accreditation are:
- Recognition by most state licensing boards.
- Indicates an organization's willingness to have their educational programs reviewed for adherence to objective national standards.
- Respect for achieving a high standard of excellence.
- Provides an avenue through which nurses can maintain professional competence.
- Promotes commitment to high quality nursing practice.
