Approver Unit

CE Approver Unit

The SGNA Approver Unit is accredited as an approver of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation. This service has helped to promote continuing education in the area of gastroenterology nursing for many years. For the last few years, the Approver Unit has continued to experience a significant decrease in program submissions and a decrease in the number of contact hours awarded. It has been determined that continuing this service is no longer feasible. Effective June 1, 2018, the SGNA Approver Unit will be discontinued. 


 The last day the SGNA Approver Unit will accept programs for contact hour approval will be April 20, 2018.

No programs will be accepted after that date. No exceptions will be made.

If you wish to submit a program after April 20th, please reach out to another approver unit. You can find a list of Approver units on the American Nursing Credentialing Center website at

For additional information, please review the Q & A sheet which can be found here.
