Presenter(s): Kathy Chappell, PhD, RN, FNAP, FAAN Host Institution: American Nurses Credentialing Center

The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), as the leader in accreditation of continuing nursing education, is piloting an innovative method of awarding continuing education (CE) credit to nurses using an outcome-based model. This model is designed to integrate a learner/team-directed educational approach that incorporates performance and quality improvement expectations into learning experiences, which can positively impact nursing practice, patient, and/or systems outcomes.

The outcome-based CE credit system does not utilize a time-based metric, but instead requires validation of learner engagement and performance. This model has five levels, beginning with articulation of knowledge and skills and progressing through application, demonstration, integration and impact on practice, patient, and/or system outcomes.

Five ANCC Accredited Providers of CE are participating in the pilot. Each organization developed its own educational activities and recruited registered nurses to provide qualitative and quantitative evaluation feedback. The feedback is being used to better understand how awarding outcome-based CE credit may impact the educational experience.


Review an outcomes-based model for awarding CE credit without time as a metric, and explore lessons learned from an innovation pilot.

Target Audience

Faculty, professional healthcare educators, and learners interested in exploring alternative methods of awarding CE credit.
