New Accreditation Standards
The process to revise JRCNMT accreditation standards occurs through a series of drafts that are disseminated for public comment. For this revision of the Standards, the process began in July 2014. The JRCNMT reviewed public comments over a series of three draft documents distributed publicly in 2015 and 2016.
The final draft was sent to the four collaborating agencies for endorsement in November 2016. After endorsement was obtained the Standards were adopted by the JRCNMT on April 8, 2017.
Programs are given a minimum of one year to comply with the new Standards. The effective date for compliance with the Standards is July 1, 2018.
