“Through University of Utah Health as an accredited provider, nurses will be offered advanced education according to the latest evidence-based standards,” says Lejla Ramic, MSN, RN, NPD-BC, nursing professional development practitioner and the accredited provider unit program director at University of Utah Health. “The accreditation signifies the organization’s commitment to fostering a culture of excellence and continuous improvement in nursing practice.”

The accreditation process is a rigorous evaluation of the organization’s nursing practice, professional development programs, and patient outcomes. It assesses the level of compliance with the ANCC’s stringent standards and criteria, ensuring that nursing services meet or exceed industry benchmarks.

By achieving ANCC accreditation, U of U Health has demonstrated its ability to provide outstanding nursing care across its health care settings, including its hospitals and clinics, research facilities, and educational programs.

The achievement of the ANCC accreditation is a testament to the dedication, expertise, and hard work of U of U Health’s nursing staff. Their unwavering commitment to patient care, innovation, and professional development has played a pivotal role in this remarkable accomplishment.

The recognition positions U of U Health as a leader in nursing care and reaffirms its commitment to advancing health care through education, research, and clinical practice.
