Peer Evaluator Orientation


Peer evaluators are site visitors, members of the Evaluation Review Panel, and members of the Appeal Panel. They make recommendations to the Board of Commissioners. Peer evaluators are knowledgeable about the current thinking within the various program types, appropriate curricula, conventions and current trends in healthcare, nursing education, and/or nursing practice.

The ACEN Peer Evaluator Online Orientation Program

The online program is designed to orient new and experienced peer evaluators to:
