Virtual Credentialing 101 Summer Course

This newly-redesigned six week, interactive course will present the foundational elements of credentialing in an acute care (hospital) setting with a primary focus on the CMS regulatory standards and The Joint Commission accreditation standards, as well as how and when to apply them. This course is a must-attend for anyone new to the field and is an excellent refresher for current MSPs who want to enhance their knowledge of credentialing.  Participants will work through a series of online modules supplemented with five live sessions facilitated by experienced NAMSS speakers.
