Approved Providers

m Bookmark and Share

The provider approval process is designed for organizations/companies interested in offering nursing contact hours for continuing nursing education activities provided to nurses within their organization/company.  Through the application process, organizations/companies demonstrate their capacity to ensure adherence to the ANCC/MW MSD accreditation guidelines during a three (3) year approval period.  Once approved, an organization/company may award nursing contact hours for all continuing nursing education activities they provide during their three-year approval period.

Provider applications are accepted three times per year: February 1st, June 1st, and October 1st.

Many of the forms listed below are provided in Microsoft Word to facilitate electronic completion.

Please note: If submitting the application electronically, the Approved Provider Application and supporting documentation must be collated into one Word or Adobe .pdf file, not to exceed 5MB in size, and each of the sample activities must be saved in separate Word or Adobe .pdf files.
