Continuing Education

Healthy Children Project is accredited as a provider of continuing nursing education by the American Nurses Credentialing Center's Commision on Accreditation.

Healthy Children Project is also a long term provider of continuing education for the International Board of Lactation Consulting Examiners (IBLCE). IBLCE is a non-profit corporation established to develop and administer a voluntary certification program for lactation consultants, based on certification guidelines developed by the US National Commission for Health Certifying Agencies. Healthy Children Project courses provide LCERPs and ECERPs that may be used to fulfil continuing education requirements for Lactation Consultants who are renewing their IBCLC designation or sitting for the IBCLC exam.

Healthy Children courses are also approved by the Commission on Dietetic Registration for CPEs for RDs. The staff at Healthy Children Project are available to help participants apply for credits from other accrediting bodies on an individual basis. 

Many of Healthy Children Project's courses have been approved for college credit recommendations. A team of content and education experts selected from college faculty examine Healthy Children courses and have awarded college credit recommendations based on their findings that Healthy Children's programs are comparable to college level courses. These college credit recommendations are accepted by Union Institute & University as part of a Bachelor of Science degree in Maternal Child Health: Lactation Consulting.
