Nursing Skills Competency Program
Effective August 1st 2020, the Nursing Skills Competency Program is no longer seeking applications.
The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) offers course recognition to set the benchmark for what makes a course acceptable. This independent national standard measures the quality of courses designed to validate a nurse’s skill or skill set in the clinical setting. As a result, consumers, employers, and credentialing bodies gain a consistent, measurable expectation of the knowledge and abilities of nurses who complete an ANCC-recognized course.
The focus of this recognition is on the course, not the provider. Courses must be designed according to ANCC criteria, which include:
- Selecting qualified faculty;
- Demonstration of validity and reliability in the evaluation process; and
- Observation of nurses successfully using the skill or skill sets in practice is also required.
In addition, a portion of courses may also qualify for contact hours.
