ABSNC Accreditation

Print Friendly

The Accreditation Board for Specialty Nursing Certification (ABSNC), formerly the ABNS Accreditation Council, is the only accrediting body specifically for nursing certification. ABSNC accreditation is a peer-review mechanism that allows nursing certification organizations to obtain accreditation by demonstrating compliance with the highest quality standards available in the industry. Accreditation is available for both ABNS member and non-member organizations.

Since 1991, ABNS recognized and promoted the value of certification through the activities of its Accreditation Council. Because the accreditation standards require a certifying organization to be autonomous from a related member organization, ABNS also created a separate and autonomous accreditation board in 2009. ABSNC continues to promote its mission to seek and recognize high quality specialty nursing and associated certification programs through accreditation.

For information on the accreditation application process, please email the ABSNC office at absnc@nursingcertification.org.

For more information on the Value of Accreditation, read our white paper "A Commitment to Quality and Care: The Importance of Accreditation for Certifying Organizations and Their Members." 

Please Note

Regarding Verification of Credentials
