What’s New with NAPSA?
- NAPSA Certificate Program Announcement
It is with great pleasure that NAPSA announces the awarding of the first NAPSA Training Certificate to Christi Hutson, an APS nurse from Visalia, California. NAPSA has been working diligently over the last few years, with the support of an Archstone Foundation grant, to develop a national APS worker certificate process. Certificates are awarded to workers who have completed all 23 core competency training modules and who have at least two years of APS experience. With the awarding of the first certificate, the work of the NAPSA Education and Certification Committees comes to fruition. Congratulations Christi! Thanks go to everyone who worked so hard on this project. Visit the national NAPSA Certificate Program web page to learn more.
