ANA Massachusetts
Approver Unit
American Nurses Association Massachusetts is accredited as an approver of nursing continuing professional development by the
American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.
Existing as a fully virtual professional association for registered nurses.

The Activity Application Program works best with the use of either Firefox or Chrome Browser to function properly.

This Approver Unit uses the 2015 ANCC Primary Accreditation Application Manual and the ANA Scope and Standards of Practice for Nursing Professional Development as the framework for its functions and believes that continuing education in nursing is essential if we are to maintain and increase professional competence, foster the advancement of the discipline, and meet the public's expectation of competent nursing care. Education is a lifelong process; it is the responsibility of each individual Registered Nurse to insure that their educational needs are identified and met in order to maintain their professional competency as a nurse.

The Approver Unit is made up of volunteer nurse educators committed to insuring high quality continuing nursing education.
