New Product Requests
The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Commission on Board Certification (COC) will explore new certification or certificate product ideas consistent with its mission to promote excellence in nursing and health care globally through credentialing programs. Consideration of new products will include an evaluation of an existing evidence base that is robust enough to support a valid examination. Requested certification products must require the demonstration of continued competence to renew the credential. In addition, requested products will not compete with existing products in the COC’s portfolio of programs.
If you are interested in submitting a request for evaluation of a new product, please send the following information to NewProductRequest@ana.org:
- Contact information, including E-Mail Address
- Specialty area requested
A member of the New Measurement Programs department will reach out to you, with information about the process for submission and consideration of your request; along with the required Certification Product Evaluation Request Questionnaire.
