Earning accreditation is much more than signing up with an organization to give away credit hours. At Provider Practice Essentials, we consider our accreditation with both the American Association of Nurse Practitioners (AANP) and the American Academy of Physician Assistants. We feel that individual accreditation specific to our members helps you trust what we do, and also emboldens your organizations to succeed with their goals of healthcare delivery.
Taking advantage of dual accreditation ensures that our material has been viewed by the primary advocating bodies for advanced practice providers, and that each one of our events will conform to the highest educations standards possible. This means that when you choose our program, you are being guaranteed the right level of education to the highest of standards. Period. This is another fact that sets us apart from the other programs out there!
AANP and AAPA are interchangeable and accept each other’s category I credits. ANCC and NCCPA also accept AANP and AAPA credits interchangeably. You are encouraged to check with your individual certifying body to ensure credits will count for you.
AANP Continuing Education
This year, we are proud to announce that we are the only non-state, non-university membership group organization to be granted partnership status with the AANP. This distinction solidifies our commitment to provide the highest level of education, and ensures that thorough vetting of our material has been completed with strict requirements. In addition, we are able to offer additional benefits through the AANP (including membership discounts to their organization).
This activity is approved for 22.25 contact hour(s) of continuing education (which includes 1.25 hour(s) of pharmacology) by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners. Activity ID# 17122935. This activity was planned in accordance with AANP Accreditation Standards and Policies.
AAPA Continuing Medical Education
As an organization member with the AAPA, we strive to deliver the same content, reviewed from their perspective, and approved through a rigorous process. This ensures that physician assistants are also receiving high quality medical education consistent with their training and expectations. We are one of a handful of organizations advertised on the AAPA website for the content we deliver to you.
This program has been reviewed and is approved for a maximum of 22.00 AAPA Category 1 CME credits by the AAPA Review Panel. PAs should claim only the credit commensurate with the extent of their participation in the activity. This program was planned in accordance with AAPA CME Standards for Live Programs and for Commercial Support of Live Programs.
