The American Nurse Credentialing Center (ANCC) Commission on Accreditation has new guidelines for ANNA's approver unit. The new accreditation standards required the revision of several forms for chapters applying for continuing nursing education (CNE) credit through ANNA's Continuing Education Approval Board (CEAB). As each form may have several changes, PowerPoint tutorials have been developed to accompany the forms.
Each month ANNA offers a FREE continuing nursing education (CNE) program in ANNA’s Online Library. This special offer is available to ANNA members only! This month's featured session, "Superbugs and Superdrugs," was originally offered at the 2013 Fall Meeting in New Orleans. Presented by Heather Nyman, PharmD, BCPS, this session focuses on infections in patients with CKD, pharmacology management, and dosing strategies based on estimated GFR and treatment modality.

ANNA's accredited approver unit, known as the Continuing Education Approval Board (CEAB), is a standing committee of the Association. CEAB reviews applications for continuing nursing education (CNE) and must adhere to the policies, procedures, and CNE criteria of the accrediting body, American Nurses Credentialing Center Commission on Accreditation (ANCC-COA).
The ANNA Resource Corps (ARC) is a volunteer database where ANNA members can maintain a volunteer profile outlining their unique strengths, skills, and interests. This information is then used to identify members with the specific talents and interests that match opportunities that arise within the organization.
