Continuing Education Department Receives Re-Accreditation

The University of Pittsburgh Continuing Education Department has received renewed accreditation from the American Nurses Credentialing Center.

ANCC Accreditation distinguishes organizations that demonstrate quality and excellence in the curriculum design and delivery of continuing education (CE). Accredited organizations, like Pitt Nursing, meet comprehensive, evidenced-based criteria to ensure CE activities are effectively planned, implemented, and evaluated. Nurses who participate in CE programs through the School of Nursing have access to the highest caliber of education to meet certification or licensure requirements, which in turn contributes to improved health care outcomes.

ANCC Accreditation is a voluntary, peer review process intended to strengthen and sustain the quality and integrity of continuing nursing education, making it worthy of public confidence. Accrediting organizations, like ANCC, assess providers of continuing nursing education to ensure they meet rigorous global standards established by ANCC.
