Joint Accreditation and CE Credit Types

In support of improving patient care, Neuroscience Education Institute (NEI) is jointly accredited by the Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC), to provide continuing education for the healthcare team.

In addition to the above three accreditation types—physician, nurse, pharmacy—NEI is further accredited to provide continuing education (CE) for physician associates, psychologists, and social workers.

Healthcare Provider Benefits

NEI's joint accreditation means that you can:

  • Earn the specific type of CE credits you need to maintain licensure and/or certification.
  • Enjoy opportunities to better understand, learn with, and learn from colleagues with different skills, all while advancing your own expertise.

Interprofessional Continuing Education (IPCE)

IPCE is when members from two or more professions learn with, from, and about each other to enable effective collaboration and improve health outcomes.

  • IPCE credits identify team-based CE activities. They do not replace education or credits for individual professions—they are in addition to credits for individual professions.
