University of Texas Health Science Center at San Antonio is accredited as a provider of nursing continuing professional development by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.

The Accredited Provider Program Director must be directly involved in planning, implementing, and evaluating an educational activity. As an accredited provider we cannot approve educational activities that have been planned by other organizations or without the involvement of the Accredited Provider Program Director.

IMPORTANT: Provider Units are responsible for developing individual education activities and awarding contact hours to nurses for use in fulfilling their own goals for professional development, licensure, and certification. Each educational activity is led by a Nurse Planner in collaboration with at least one other planner. Contact hours may not be awarded for CNE activities developed without the direct involvement of a Nurse Planner. Provider Units may jointly provide activities with other non-commercial interest organizations. Provider Units may not approve educational activities that have been planned by other organizations or individuals or without the involvement of a Provider Unit Nurse Planner. Failure to comply with ANCC accreditation criteria can result in probation, suspension, and revocation (ANCC Primary Accreditation Provider Application Manual, Current Edition, p. 11).

We can help you plan, implement and evaluate a continuing education (CE) activity. Planning begins with identifying when CE might be a desired intervention to address a change that has been made to a standard of care, a problem that exists in practice, or an opportunity for improvement.  UTHSA HOP Policy on CE Events

“It was a pleasure working with the team on our annual NAS Symposium. Sherece and her team considered every detailed, provided every clarification, and managed all expectations and needs of our presenters, attendees and our self with each. The team was instrumental in guiding us through the planning process. The team is incredibly responsive, creative and always go the extra mile to ensure our event was successful, memorable and seamless. Every detail was considered and every issue was addressed efficiently and confidentiality while keeping us informed. The team was available every step of the way and remained front and center from the day before the conference until the very end of the conference. I look forward to working with the team again in the future and would recommend your team to manage conferences and events of any size.”
