The Advantages of ACP Clinical Program Certification

In addition to driving the development of staff skills, becoming ACP Certified differentiates your facility in a competitive market. Under the value-based healthcare model, improving quality of care and operational performance has become even more critical in supporting reimbursement. By investing in clinical education, including nursing education, there is an opportunity to materially improve quality by implementing best practices, resulting in positive outcomes for patients. Amy Stewart, AAPACN Chief Nursing officer, underscores the value of certification in a recent press release

Improving quality of care and operational performance through dedicated investments in nurse education and certification isn’t just a choice now. It’s the cornerstone of success for SNFs seeking to secure their position in the value-based payment discussion.
