Children’s Hospital Colorado recently received Accreditation with Distinction from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) for its Neonatal Nurse Practitioner (NNP) Fellowship Program, becoming the first ANCC Accredited NNP program in the country.

The ANCC Practice Transition Accreditation program is dedicated to validating hospital residency and fellowship programs that help transition registered nurses (RNs) and advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) into new practice settings that meet rigorous, evidence-based standards for quality and excellence. APRNs in the NNP Fellowship program at Children’s Hospital Colorado are part of an elite program that promotes the acquisition of knowledge, skills, and professional behaviors necessary to deliver the safest and highest-quality care.

Pat Givens, Senior Vice President and Chief Nursing Executive for Children’s Colorado, tells eurekalert.org, “We are extremely proud that Children’s Hospital Colorado’s Neonatal Nurse Practitioner Fellowship is recognized by ANCC as one of the highest-quality transition programs in the country for NNPs. The accreditation provides the patients and families we serve across the state and region with the reassurance that our neonatal nurse practitioners are some of the most highly trained in the country.

Children’s Hospital Colorado is one of the nation’s leading and most expansive pediatric healthcare systems with a mission to improve the health of children through patient care, education, research, and advocacy.
