       A Message for Nurses from ANA President          


Today ANA MA is honored to represent MA nurses at ANA's Lobby Day in Washington, D.C. Nurses are one of the most trusted professionals. We must speak loudly and advocate for a healthier tomorrow.

 We are pleased to announce that the American Nurses Association Massachusetts Approver Unit is the recipient of the 2016 American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Accreditation Program’s Premier Award.

The Premier Program Award recognizes accredited organizations that excel in approving organizations and/or individuals to develop high quality continuing nursing education activities. Organizations receiving the Premier Program Award demonstrate excellence in leadership ability and promoting the use of innovative and creative education strategies to meet the needs of learners. The effectiveness of continuing nursing education activities approved by Premier Program Award recipients is continually evaluated to achieve optimal professional nursing and patient care outcomes.

 The award will be presented at the ANCC annual Continuing Nursing Education symposium in Pittsburgh, PA on July 19, 2016.


 Congratulations to the Accredited Approver Unit on achieving this prestigious designation!
