Joint Accreditation Webinar

Join Christine Arenson, MD, National Center director, for a 30 minute recorded webinar providing an overview of the National Center Office of Interprofessional Continuing Professional Development and accreditation services available.



In support of improving patient care, the National Center for Interprofessional Practice and Education, in partnership with the University of Minnesota School of Nursing and College of Pharmacy is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.

As a Jointly Accredited Provider, the National Center is approved to offer social work continuing education by the Association of Social Work Boards (ASWB) Approved Continuing Education (ACE) program. Organizations, not individual courses, are approved under this program. State and provincial regulatory boards have the final authority to determine whether an individual course may be accepted for continuing education credit.

The National Center is approved by the Board of Certification, Inc. to provide continuing education to Athletic Trainers (ATs).  Approved programs are eligible for Category A hours/CEUs. ATs should claim only those hours actually spent in the educational program.
