Nurses


The 5-Diamond Patient Safety Program is pleased to partner with Quality Insights to extend continuing education credit for nurses who completion of the following modules:
  • Culture of Safety (mandatory module)
  • Care Coordination/Care Transition
  • Home Dialysis Therapy
  • Mental/Behavioral Health
  • Transplantation
Quality Insights is accredited as a provider of nursing continuing professional development by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commission on Accreditation.
   

CCHTs


The Nephrology Nursing Certification Commission (NNCC) will accept all 5-Diamond Patient Safety Program modules work towards the 30 hour/3-year CCHT re-certification requirements, if the module in-service is presented by a licensed RN within the facility.

Once the facility successfully completes a module, it earns a “Diamond” and prints a certificate from the participant summary page. The certificate can be duplicated, and the following information can be added:  
  • Name of the CCHT that participated
  • Date and name of the program
  • Number of Contact Hours Awarded (1.0)
  • Signature of licensed staff RN providing in-service program​
This information should be written/documented on the contact hour form contained within the CCHT re-certification application.  Please be sure to include "5-Diamond Program" in the title (ex. for Culture of Safety module, list as "5-Diamond Program: Culture of Safety"; for  the Transplantation module, list as "5-Diamond Program: Transplantation", etc.)

It is estimated that each in-service will take approximately one hour, therefore the NNCC will credit each module in-service at 1.0 CE. The NNCC recognizes module completion towards technician recertification requirements only.

All Other Disciplines


The 5-Diamond Patient Safety Program is not currently offering additional continuing education credit. You may complete the nursing CE request form as proof of your participation.  Each licensing organization and state has different requirements. Some organizations may accept the nursing-approved certificate as proof of participation towards re-certification requirements; some may not.*
 

*Acceptance of participation by licensing organizations towards re-certification continuing education requirements is at the discretion of the licensing organization, in accordance to the licensing organization's policies.
