HOW TO BECOME AN APPROVED PROVIDER

How to Become an Approved Provider

The awarding of Approved Provider status is the means by which TNA grants public recognition to an individual, organization, or part of an organization that has met the established standards for providing continuing nursing education (CNE) activities.

An Approved Provider Unit has established the infrastructure, processes, and systems to develop, implement, and evaluate CNE activities internally, without having to come through TNA first.

Some Important Tips

Applications are accepted twice a year: January 15 and July 15. Start the process of becoming an Approved Provider at least six months prior to one of those dates.

CNE Approved Provider status requires that a minimum of three individual activities have been planned and presented within the 12 months preceding the submission of an application for Approved Provider status. All activities must meet the criteria established by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC)
