The Villanova (Pa.) University College of Nursing achieved accreditation with distinction from the American Nurses Credentialing Center.
The accreditation distinguishes organizations that demonstrate quality and excellence in the curriculum design and delivery of continuing nursing education, according to a news release. ANCC accredited organizations meet comprehensive, evidence-based criteria to ensure continuing nursing education activities are effectively planned, implemented and evaluated.
We have been nationally accredited for over 25 years, but this is the first opportunity we have had to receive the new designation of accreditation with distinction, Lyn DeSilets, RN-BC, EdD, assistant dean and director of continuing education in nursing and healthcare at Villanova, said in the release. It is an honor to be recognized by ANCC for our commitment to continuous improvement and the highest quality continuing education for nurses.
ANCC accreditation is a voluntary, peer-reviewed process.
