Credentialing and Clinical Privileges of APNP

Credentialing and other clinical benefits are strategies used by hospitals and other organizations involved in health care provision, to make certain that their clients and the general public receive quality services from qualified professionals.

In Texas, most of the hospitals are not necessarily required, by law, to neither credential nor privilege APNP’s (Dains, Baumann, and Scheibel, 2012). However, as a matter of practice and to ensure their clients receive quality treatment, most of the healthcare organizations within the state do credential and privilege their APNP’s.  For those health care organizations that privilege their APNP’s they are required to meet the provisions of Section 241.105, Health and Safety Code. This is the section that grants hospitals the authority to give privileges to their APNP’s.

For those health care organizations that give privileges to their APNP’s, they must have policy that outlines a reasonable time frame for looking into the various applications submitted by the applicants. Additionally, they are required to give a reason for refusal or limitation of the privileges demanded. . They are also required to allow the applicant appeal the decision, if he or she feels by any means aggrieved (Osborne, 2011).  Finally, the policy should also incorporate rights that are due to the APNP in case the   privileges are altered or revoked, including a written submission of the same, justifications for the alteration or revocation, and a means for appeal.

For Louisiana State the statutes governing credentialing and privileging of APNP’s are more comprehensive and cover almost all the aspects covering these two areas. For example, as regards the credentials of APNP’s the state of Louisiana exclusively requires one to have been certified by a nationally accredited certifying body. One of such body includes American Nurses.
