35 participants per session—Register Early!
Agenda: Registration will open at 8:45 am; workshop will begin promptly at 9:00 am and end at 12:15 pm. Mid-morning snack will be served.
Learning Outcome: Primary Nurse Planners, Nurse Planners, and Provider Unit personnel attending this session will have the knowledge necessary to lead approved provider units according to ANCC criteria while planning and providing educational activities that meet ANCC/NCNA criteria for nursing continuing education.
If you are planning many educational activities and wish to forego approval every time you plan and implement an activity, then consider the Approved Provider process. Once you are approved to function as an Approved Provider, you can deliver as many activities as you like to as many learners as possible for the approval period. Eligibility to apply or re-apply must be confirmed before NCNA will accept the Approved Provider Application.
Note: If you are new to the process, you must first meet criteria for the 3 Individual Activities approved by NCNA within a 12 month period prior to applying for AP status (or approved by an ANCC accredited approver other than NCNA).
The North Carolina Nurses Association is accredited as an approver of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.
