The College Network Has Become an Approved Continuing Nursing Education Provider

The College Network Is Now Accredited by the American Nurses Credentialing Center to Offer Continuing Nursing Education Courses

INDIANAPOLIS, IN--(Marketwire - Jul 8, 2011) - The College Network™ has been accredited by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to offer continuing education courses for nurses. Initial topics include Ethics in Nursing, Medication Safety, and Patient Rights.

"As a nurse, I am very proud of what The College Network has achieved," said Chief Nursing Officer at The College Network Nita Kasan. "I'm excited about the additional contribution we will make to the nursing profession, patient outcomes and healthcare overall."

Established in 1974, the Accreditation Program of the ANCC recognizes organizations that offer high quality continuing education for nurses. The program contributes to healthcare quality and professional nursing practice by providing a voluntary peer review process that defines standards for organizations that elect to apply for accreditation.

"We are excited to be able to provide nurses with more education options throughout their careers," said Gary Eyler, Owner and Chief Executive Officer at The College Network. "These continuing education courses will allow us to reach more nurses by providing valuable information that will enhance their current skills and provide them with new learning opportunities."

The College Network plans to offer its first continuing nursing education courses online beginning in August 2011. Upon completion of each initial course, nurses will receive 2.5 continuing education contact hours.
