What is an Advisory Review?

An Advisory Review is a one-time opportunity for an ACEN-accredited program to receive feedback from an ACEN professional staff member regarding draft accreditation documents as selected by the respective program’s nurse administrator (e.g., SSR, faculty profile table, SEP, etc.) as the program prepares for continuing accreditation.

An Advisory Review is a 100% optional resource for currently accredited programs and is not a requirement for continuing accreditation. Professional staff feedback indicates the staff member’s best judgment but does not guarantee that the Board of Commissioners will determine that the program complies with the ACEN Standards and Criteria.

When can an Advisory Review occur?

The timeframe for an Advisory Review is during the 6th or 7th year of the program’s continuing accreditation or during the 3rd or 4th year following the program’s initial accreditation. Actual date and time will be mutually agreed upon between the professional staff member assigned to the Advisory Review and the program’s respective nurse administrator. The Advisory Review agenda must be set by the nurse administrator.
