ABSNC Accreditation

The Accreditation Board for Specialty Nursing Certification (ABSNC), was established in 1991 as the ABNS Accreditation Council. Since 2009, the ABSNC has been a separate and autonomous accreditation board. It serves as the only accrediting body specifically dedicated to evaluating nursing certification programs. Through a peer-review mechanism, nursing certification organizations obtain accreditation by demonstrating compliance with the most rigorous industry standards.

The ABSNC continues to promote its vision to be universally recognized as the pre-eminent accrediting organization for all specialty nursing and nursing associated credentialing programs. Accreditation is available for both ABNS member and non-member organizations.

Organizations interested in verifying individual certification credentials should contact the appropriate certification boards.
