Consensus Model for APRN Regulation Frequently Asked Questions from the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) 1. Why was the Consensus Model for APRN Regulation developed? The Consensus Model for APRN Regulation: Licensure, Accreditation, Certification & Education (APRN Consensus Model) is a uniform model of regulation for the future of advanced practice nursing that is designed to align the interrelationships among licensure, accreditation, certification, and education (LACE). ANCC anticipates that the consistency—and clarity—that results from the new regulatory model will benefit individual nurses and enhance patient care.
