On July 27, 2020, the governing bodies of Accreditation Council for Continuing Medical Education (ACCME), the Accreditation Council for Pharmacy Education (ACPE), and the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Accreditation Program (ANCC) granted the American Society of Nephrology (ASN) with Joint Accreditation for 6 years.

What does this mean for ASN and the community it serves? ASN is now simultaneously accredited to provide medical, nursing and pharmacy continuing education activities through a single process, without needing to obtain separate accreditations.

According to ASN President Anupam Agarwal, MD, FASN, “This exceptional achievement enhances ASN’s ability to serve its members and advance its mission. This classification resulted from a significant and sustained effort by the ASN education team, particularly Senior Director of Education Jin Soo Kim, and volunteer leaders, and advances ASN’s commitment to provide the best educational opportunities to the interprofessional health care team and improve patient care.”

ASN continues to provide the premier educational experience in nephrology through its meetings, journals, and an ever-growing variety of educational offerings. The society will continue to serve all members of the kidney community by creating innovative tools and platforms and encouraging every kidney professional in the world to benefit from the educational experiences ASN provides.

How ASN leads the world in its commitment to education:

  • ASN Kidney Week
  • ASN Highlights
  • Board Review Course and Update
  • NephSAP
  • KSAP
  • Online Courses and Curricula
  • Webinars
