Musings on Accreditation: More on Promises

Candice Rettie, PhD 0 805

Musings on the promise and capriciousness of spring, the quickly evolving field of postgraduate nurse practitioner training, and the role of accreditation as a mechanism to assure the continuity of quality and meaningful experiences. Accreditation echoes Spring's characteristics -- new growth, periodic renewal and clearing the way for future growth.  Accreditation is about making promises.  Keeping promises.  Fulfilling expectations. 

Musings on Accreditation: Promise and Beauty

Candice Rettie, PhD 2 903

Hello. Welcome to the National Nurse Practitioner Residency and Fellowship Training Consortium’s blog.

I am Dr. Candice Rettie, the Executive Director of the Consortium.

This week I reflect on the forsythia and cherry blossoms in bloom, migratory birds returning to their summer breeding grounds, the terrorist attack in Belgium, and what we can learn about community when we think about accreditation processes for postgraduate NP training programs.
