The American Nurses Credentialing Center's (ANCC) Pathway to Excellence® Program recognizes organizations that create positive practice environments for nursing. To achieve Pathway designation, organizations must demonstrate the presence of criteria essential to an ideal nursing practice environment as defined under six standards: shared decision-making, leadership, safety, quality, well-being, and professional development. Elements of performance (EOPs) criteria for each standard are continually assessed by the Commission on Pathway to Excellence (COPE), the governing body of the program, and ANCC Pathway program staff. Typically, the Pathway EOPs are revised every 4 years based on a review of current evidence, best practices, and environmental scans to ensure continuing relevance for addressing issues facing nurses and healthcare organizations.
