Pathway to Excellence Publications and Products

The release of the 2020 Pathway to Excellence & Pathway to Excellence in Long-Term Care Application Manual is scheduled for February 2020. This is a revision of both the 2016 Pathway to Excellence and 2017 Pathway to Excellence in Long-Term Care Application manuals. The requirements for both designations will be included in this one manual. There will be some new concepts, however, much of the 2020 manual will remain similar to the current versions. Organizations applying or re-applying for either designation are required to write to the new elements of performance in the 2020 manual beginning with the February 1, 2021 cycle.

Please note, Pathway is seeking public comment prior to publication of the upcoming manual. The survey closes September 15, 2019. Please provide your valuable feedback by clicking this link: Please note: CNOs, DONs, and PPCs at designated and applicant organizations have been sent an email invitation to the survey. If you have received an email invite, accessing the survey through the email will allow for completing the survey in more than one sitting, while completing the survey via this link must be completed in one sitting.
