News Regarding ANCC Accreditation

Earn CNE credits through ICEA’s education!

The ICEA Board has worked hard to make certain all of our workshops and conferences bring you value. To continue these efforts, we are very excited to bring you the following news:

International Childbirth Education Association is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s (ANCC) Commission on Accreditation.

ANCC recognizes organizations which demonstrate excellence in the ability to deliver continuing nursing education (CNE) with Primary Accreditation. We are excited to be a part of their Primary Accreditation Program because it contributes to improving healthcare outcomes. To learn more about ANCC, please visit their website.

What does this mean for you?

To sum it up, continuing nursing education (CNE) will now be awarded with every ICEA workshop and conference. The number of CNE credits will vary for each event, and the number of credits awarded will be noted with event registration. CNE credits can be used towards American Nursing Association certification or recertification.

If you have any questions about ICEA becoming an accredited CNE provider with ANCC, please email info@icea.org.
