Harrisburg, PA, September 28, 2022 – The Pennsylvania State Nurses Association (PSNA), the professional nursing association representing Pennsylvania’s more than 228,000 registered nurses, has been accredited as an approver of nursing continuing professional development by The American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC) Commission on Accreditation.

“We are thrilled to continue to offer this service to our current providers and hope to work with more organizations in the future,” stated PSNA Director of Professional Development Kelly Stephens, MSN, RN.

The ANCC NCPD Accreditation Program identifies organizations worldwide that demonstrate excellence in Nursing Continuing Professional Development (NCPD). Accredited organizations use evidence-based ANCC criteria to plan, implement and evaluate the highest quality NCPD activities. As a result, health ministries, nursing organizations, employers, and continuing education enterprises rely on ANCC accreditation to call forth advanced nursing practice and improved outcomes. Nurses can choose the highest caliber of education to meet certification or licensure requirements.
