NJSNA Application Process
New Jersey State Nurses Association is accredited as an approver of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's COA
There are Two Types of Application
What is an "Educational Activity”?
An "Individual Educational Activity” is a single application. This application is used if you wish to offer a program for contact hours. As the RN planner and/or person administratively responsible for the program, you have the opportunity to assure the continued success of these standards by advocating and promoting quality continuing nursing education programs.
NJSNA’s Continuing Education Manual incorporates criteria mandated by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation. Our step-by-step application process is provided in the"NJSNA Continuing Education Approver Manual” under the "Criteria for Educational Activities” and makes the application process much easier.
What is an "Approved Provider” Application"?
An individual, organization, etc., who is planning on doing a variety of different activities may wish to consider becoming an approved provider. The "Approved Provider” unit must be able to demonstrate the ability to assess, plan, implement and evaluate Continuing Nursing Education (CNE) activities for nurses and others. The applicant must meet certain prerequisites before they can apply to become an Approved Provider Unit. See the "Criteria for Approval As A Provider” section in the "NJSNA Continuing Education Approval Manual” details.
Applicants can get individual activities approved as often as they want without becoming an "Approved Provider” Unit.
