We accredit a wide range of programmes including events, eLearning, credit-bearing degrees, hard copy resources, guidelines, standards and competency frameworks.
RCN accreditation is beneficial for your organisation:
The accreditation team will support you throughout the application process. We are on hand to answer your queries or to hold a self-assessment workshop. Our self-assessment workshops can ensure your programme delivers effective education outcomes. They can be undertaken at any time before submitting your application for external peer review.
The Royal College of Nursing notes that there are several types of software and Apps for use in health and social care. The RCN is supportive of the work of the National Institute for Health and Care Excellence and its collaborators in developing an assessment tool for Apps used for health and social care. Until such time that a credible assessment tool becomes available the RCN is not in a position to endorse or accredit Apps.
If and when the RCN decides to endorse/accredit Apps we will develop an effective and appropriate process and quality assurance framework for it.
