Accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education
Boston, MA - June 10, 2015 - Coverys, a leading provider of medical professional liability insurance and related services, is proud to announce that it has been awarded Accreditation with Distinction from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC). This is the highest level of recognition given by ANCC.
ANCC Accreditation distinguishes organizations that promote safe and positive work environments through the delivery of continuing nursing education (CNE). To receive the accreditation, Coverys has promoted excellence in nursing and patient safety, providing nurses the knowledge and skills to help improve care and patient outcomes.
“We are proud to receive the highly regarded Accreditation with Distinction from ANCC, especially since less than 10% of all ANCC-accredited organizations achieve this honor,” said Tara Gibson, vice president of risk management. “Our commitment to providing continuing education for healthcare professionals is exhibited in this recognition and reflects the diligence of our employees. Today, through Coverys, nurses can be assured they are receiving up-to-date knowledge of the industry and have access to the highest caliber of education to meet certification or licensure requirements, which in turn contributes to improved healthcare outcomes.”
ANCC Accreditation is a voluntary peer review process intended to strengthen and sustain the quality and integrity of continuing nursing education, making it worthy of public confidence. Accrediting organizations, like ANCC, assess providers of continuing nursing education to ensure they meet rigorous global standards.
