Ambulatory Care Tabs of the ANPD Clinical Matrix

AAACN's Clinical Education Matrix Task Force worked with the Association for Nursing Professional Development (ANPD) to develop ambulatory care tabs for the ANPD Clinical Education Matrix, which serves as a guide to education required by regulatory and accrediting bodies.

The ambulatory care tabs are a collaboration between AAACN and ANPD and include accrediting, onboarding, and regulatory requirements for ambulatory clinical education. This education matrix is considered a living document is updated annually.

The newest edition contains updates to The Joint Commission.
