The ANCC Practice Transition Accreditation Program (PTAP)™ sets the global standard for residency or fellowship programs that transition registered nurses (RNs) and advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) into new practice settings.
ANCC accredits the following types of transition programs:
- RN Residencies — For nurses with less than 12 months' experience
- RN Fellowships — For experienced nurses to master new clinical settings
- APRN Fellowships — For newly certified advanced practice nurses
With ANCC evidence-based criteria your program demonstrates excellence in transitioning nurses to new practice settings.
