Effectively Leading an ACEN-Accredited Program: A Workshop for Program Administrators

Learning the role and responsibilities of a program administrator and progressing from a novice to an expert in the position requires a well-planned orientation and mentoring process. This workshop provides the novice and advanced-beginner program administrator with information related to the ACEN accreditation policies and processes. Attendees will be oriented to the responsibilities of a program administrator in maintaining compliance with the 2017 ACEN Standards and Criteria and provide with helpful direction related to reporting and maintenance of documentation. If you have been appointed as a new program administrator within the past three years or are new to ACEN accreditation, this workshop is for you!

The Program Administrators Workshop will not address the same topics as the ACEN Self-Study Forum. Those also interested in learning about the development of a Self-Study Report, preparation of a Follow-Up Report, or information related to an onsite accreditation review should register separately for the ACEN Self-Study Forum.  The Forum in San Antonio, TX, has been scheduled at the same venue for April 5-6, 2018 to provide the ability to attend both programs with one convenient travel itinerary.  Click here for more information about the ACEN Self-Study Forums.

Please note that the target audience for this workshop is the nurse administrators and program coordinators of currently-accredited ACEN programs with fewer than three years of experience in the role, the nurse administrators and program coordinators of programs with candidate status, or the nurse administrators and program coordinators of programs that recently obtained ACEN accreditation.


This continuing education activity was approved by the Tennessee Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center Commission on Accreditation. Approval valid through September 5, 2019.
