This session is jointly provided by Walden University and HealthLinx. The planners and presenters of this nursing continuing professional development activity disclose that there are no relevant financial relationships (those held by the planner or significant other, currently or within the last 12 months) with commercial interests.

Walden University is accredited as a provider of nursing continuing professional development by the American Nurses Credentialing Centers Commission on Accreditation. Provider Unit P0469.

While professional development activities offered by an American Nurses Credentialing Center Provider Unit typically satisfy the requirements of most states, Walden University recommends that participants ensure that the content offered meets their individual requirements. To the extent that contact hours must be approved within one’s state of residence or licensure, participants should check with their state board of nursing before enrolling in any professional development activity. The state board of nursing determines the number and type of contact hours that can be claimed for professional development activities. 

The baccalaureate degree program in nursing (BSN), master’s degree program in nursing (MSN), and Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program at Walden University are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (http://www.ccneaccreditation.org). Officially recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education as a national accreditation agency, CCNE is an autonomous accrediting agency contributing to the improvement of the public’s health. CCNE ensures the quality and integrity of baccalaureate, graduate, and residency programs in nursing.
