AANP is committed to the development of educationally sound continuing education (CE) that is relevant to NP practice. Through accreditation, you can ensure your CE activities are consistent with AANP quality standards—and share your content with an active community of NPs. All NP CE providers are encouraged to submit activities for review and credit, thereby reinforcing the value of high-quality CE and promoting best practices in education.
You’ve worked hard to develop workshops, lectures, seminars, conferences, online education, monographs, publications, activities and much more. Now, get your CE in front of NPs who need it by applying for AANP accreditation! All activity sponsors are invited to apply.
