The Kansas State Nurses Association, Missouri Nurses Association and Nebraska Nurses Association formed a collaborative, namely the Midwest Multistate Division (Midwest MSD), with the goal of promoting efficiencies and growth. Each SNA will retain its own state identity while utilizing shared resources within the Midwest MSD. The Midwest MSD will provide unified tools and technologies and streamlined resources in order to strengthen each SNA.

As part of this collaborative, the Midwest Multistate Division Professional Development Unit (Midwest MSD PD Unit) was formed to address the educational needs of the nurses in the Midwest region.

The Midwest Multistate Division is accredited as an approver and provider of nursing continuing professional development by the American Nurses Credentialing Center’s Commission on Accreditation (ANCC COA).

The Midwest MSD offers two approval processes for agencies/organizations/facilities to utilize to obtain continuing nursing education credits for programs they provide:

  • Individual Education Activities: Organizations interested in awarding nursing contact hours for one, single educational activity or conference
  •  Approved Providers: Organizations interested in receiving approval to award nursing contact hours for multiple educational activities provided to nurses within their organization or their target audience.
