This is the highest level of recognition awarded by ANCC’s Accreditation Program and has been granted to APIC through March 31, 2024.
One contact hour is defined as one hour of time spent in an educational experience.
Course evaluations will be available via an online link provided in course materials. All evaluations must be completed within 30 days. After satisfying all evaluation requirements, a certificate of completion will be available to print and/or for your records indicating contact hours.
Accredited status does not imply endorsement by APIC or the American Nurses Credentialing Center of any commercial products displayed or discussed in conjunction with an educational activity. While APIC is approved to provide contact hours, APIC’s educational programs may be eligible for contact hours from other accrediting bodies.
