Invest in the Future of Credentialing

ICE has a strong tradition of research excellence. Our research reflects the current state of the industry, with a mission to better inform the individuals leading credentialing organizations. Many aspects of credentialing will always require on-going analysis, while other, cutting-edge trends require the establishment of baseline information in order to progress. ICE believes in the future of the credentialing community and believes that your involvement is the key to the success of its R&D agenda. With your support, ICE can continue to develop a rigorous research program that will improve ICE member organizations and the programs they administer.

Chuck Vacchiano, PhD, CRNA, President of the National Board of Certification and Recertification for Nurse Anesthetists (NBCRNA), explains why they support ICE’s R&D program:

As we seek to incorporate industry best practices and outcome measures for the certification and recertification of nurse anesthetists, we rely on ICE as a reliable source of this information. Over the past several years ICE R & D efforts have produced invaluable industry resources related to the trends in certification, test development and delivery, continuous assessment based on lifelong learning, and other information relevant to the credentialing community. The research carried out by ICE is a valuable tool that helps us ensure that the credential earned by nurse anesthetists continues to be regarded as a standard of excellence."
