ANCC accreditation is valid for four years.
The University of Maryland School of Nursing (UMSON) has been awarded accreditation with distinction as a provider of Nursing Continuing Professional Development (NCPD) by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC) Commission on Accreditation. Accreditation with distinction is achieved by passing the accreditation review without any deficiencies and is the highest recognition that ANCC awards. The accreditation is valid for four years, until November 2025.
The ANCC Accreditation Program identifies organizations worldwide that demonstrate excellence in NCPD. Accredited organizations use evidence-based ANCC criteria to plan, implement, and evaluate the highest-quality NCPD activities. As a result, health agencies, nursing organizations, employers, and continuing education enterprises rely on ANCC accreditation to further advanced nursing practice and improved patient outcomes.
