If you are planning many educational activities and wish to forego approval every time you plan and implement an activity, then consider the Approved Provider process. Once you are approved to function as an Approved Provider, you can deliver as many activities as you like to as many learners as possible for the approval period. Eligibility to apply or re-apply must be confirmed before TNA will accept the Approved Provider Application.

NOTE: Provider units MAY NOT approve activities for other organizations.


The Tennessee Nurses Association is accredited as an approver of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation.
