Phase One for the review of the NLNAC Standards and Criteria is
underway! 2007 is the year for our constituent groups to participate
in the evaluation of the quality and relevancy of the Standards
and Criteria. Hundreds of you volunteered – thank you! The
Subcommittees have been selected for each of the program types NLNAC
accredits, and members have been invited to a meeting at the end
of February in Houston, Texas. Literature searches have been conducted
for trends in evaluation, nursing practice, and education; reading
lists have been distributed to the committee members. Following
an orientation session, the members will begin the work required
for the comprehensive analysis of the current Standards as well
as the development of the 2008 Standards & Criteria.
Each of you will have the opportunity to offer
comments during the process. It is very important that you be involved
and provide feedback to your peers on the Subcommittees as well
as to the Commission throughout the analysis and development process.
Please watch for Committee Membership updates on the NLNAC Website
at www.nlnac.org and also
in other future communications.
