ANCC Programmatic Resources for APRNs
Elevate your nurse residency or fellowship program to the highest standard through accreditation!
The ANCC Practice Transition Accreditation Program® (PTAP) sets the global standard for residency or fellowship programs that transition registered nurses (RNs) and advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) into new practice settings.
ANCC accredits the following types of transition programs:
- RN Residencies — For nurses with less than 12 months' experience
- RN Fellowships — For experienced nurses to master new clinical settings
- APRN Fellowships — For newly certified advanced practice nurses
The Pathway to Excellence® Program recognizes a healthcare organization's commitment to creating a positive nursing practice environment. The Pathway to Excellence in Long Term Care® program is the first to recognize this type of supportive work setting specifically in long-term care facilities.
