Provider Practice Essentials registered nurse continuing education

Accreditation (AANP & AAPA)

Dual Accreditation

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 our organization to reach our goals of teaching improved healthcare delivery.

Taking advantage of dual accreditation ensures that our material has been reviewed by the primary advocating bodies for advanced practice providers, and that each one of our events will conform to the highest education standards possible. This means that when you choose our program, you are being guaranteed the right level of education to the highest of standards.  This is another fact that sets us apart from the other programs out there!

AANP Continuing Education

American Association of Nurse Practitioners accredited

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 2.5 hour(s) of pharmacology) by the American Association of Nurse Practitioners. Activity ID# 21034821. This activity was planned in accordance with AANP Accreditation Standards and Policies.

Emergency Nurse Practitioner Certification

Our CME conferences include 12 procedure hours that qualify towards Emergency Nurse Practitioner Certification requirements. In addition to our live program, we have a fully accredited Emergency Medicine Board Review Series, which will allow the participant to earn all of the credit hours, emergency procedure hours, and pharmacology hours required to sit for the ENP certification examination.

AAPA Continuing Medical Education

American Academy of Physician Assistants continuing education course

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.

Credits for our programs may also be counted toward CAQ requirements by the NCCPA.

PPE Membership

Participating in Provider Practice Essentials workshops and online programs is much more than a 2-day program. Membership is a gateway to lifelong learning, clinical resources, and membership in a community advocating for consistent, up-to-date, and high quality clinical practice that identify you as a strong provider!
