The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Practice Transition Accreditation Program (PTAP)™ sets the global standard for residency or fellowship programs that transition registered nurses and advanced practice registered nurses into new practice settings. The ANCC’s PTAP accreditation means Memorial Hermann’s Nurse Residency Program delivers the knowledge, skills and professional behaviors new nurses need to deliver safe, high-quality care.​​​​​​​ Several Memorial Hermann hospitals participate in the system’s Nurse Residency Program. The PTAP accreditation distinction marks the first for the system and reflects the standardization achieved.
The ANCC certifies individual nurses, recognizes healthcare organizations for nursing excellence through the Magnet Recognition Program®, Pathway to Excellence®, and Pathway to Excellence in Long Term Care® Program, and accredits providers and approvers of continuing nursing education, nursing skills competency programs, and nurse residency and fellowship programs.
