The Consortium for Advanced Practice Providers offers programmatic accreditation for postgraduate nurse practitioner training programs, designed by NP and PA postgraduate program directors, for NP and PA postgraduate training directors. The Consortium exists to support new and ongoing postgraduate training programs for nurse practitioners and physician assistants in the achievement and maintenance of the highest standards of rigor and quality, consistent with achieving the goal of an expert healthcare workforce prepared to meet the needs of patients and the society as a whole.
The Consortium for Advanced Practice Providers is inclusive of all individuals and organizations that are committed to the cause of advancing postgraduate training for NPs and PAs. It’s a growing network of healthcare organizations, united by shared standards. In 2019, the Consortium opened its dues-based membership program.
