This continuing nursing education activity was approved by the Alabama State Nurses Association, an accredited approver by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.

Multiple states accept ANCC credit for nurse continuing education.  In addition, many states require at least half of advance practice nurse continuing education credits to be obtained from an ANCC approved provider or from courses approved by an ANCC approver.  Once pending course approval is granted, all of Words Matter courses will meet this requirement.

State of Iowa

Words Matter is an Iowa Board of Nursing approved provider, #375.

If you have any questions on whether your state accepts any of the above credits for nurse continuing education, you may check with your state board of nursing or call Words Matter at 855.227.6784. We will be happy to help you!
