    BIRMINGHAM, AL December 21, 2016 —The Accreditation Board for Specialty Nursing Certification, Inc. (ABSNC), announces the development and launch of two new sets of accreditation standards: Portfolio Assessment Certification and Assessment-Based Certificate Programs. Nursing organizations with programs that offer a portfolio assessment certification or an assessment-based certificate program may now earn ABSNC accreditation as a highly desirable distinction to validate the quality of these specialty programs.

    A portfolio assessment is a purposeful collection of materials that authentically document the candidate’s knowledge, skills, understanding, and application of professional nursing practice and theory in a defined specialty area. The portfolio should include candidate self-reflection that demonstrates his or her metacognitive ability.

    An assessment-based certificate program is a non-degree granting program that provides evidence-based education on a narrow subset of knowledge and skills that adds value to the clinician and the healthcare consumer. A certificate is awarded on completion of the education program and successful performance on an outcomes-based assessment, not for attendance only.
