ACMPE UpdateSubmitted by Tom Ludwig, RN, FACMPEWMGMA ACMPE Forum Rep
Certification and Fellowship Program Changes
Effective January 1, 2019, you will need a bachelor’s degree (or an equivalent number of college credits) to be eligible for Certification. If you do not have a degree, you will need to:
If you do not have a bachelor’s degree and are pursuing Fellowship, receive approval on a business plan proposal or paper outline AND submit a final business plan or manuscript by Dec. 31, 2018.
Also effective January 1 is the requirement to write a business plan for Fellowship. This will replace the professional paper (a master’s degree-type thesis). If you prefer to write a professional paper, you will need to have a paper outline submitted and accepted prior to Jan. 1, 2019. You may then continue working on your paper manuscript up until two years from your outline approval date. Starting in 2019, business plan submissions will be the only acceptable submission if no outline is previously accepted.
