The Commission on Accreditation has approved several changes to program requirements that have been incorporated into the new manual. Two new changes include:
1) Removal of the graduate degree requirement for the Designated Nurse Planner in an Accredited Provider Unit.
2) Removal of the target audience representative from the required members of a planning committee.
Changes may be implemented as of January 1, 2011 but will not be required until at least 12 months after publication of the new Accreditation Manu
