Does anyone have any information about the new JCAHO certification for healthcare staffing agencies? I received my weekly newsletter from Nationwide Nurses and it was talking about receiving their certification. Are agencies different from hospitals? I know hospitals have to be JCAHO certified, but I thought agencies did, too. Anyone have any experience with this?

Not all agencies are certified..........many are trying to be becasue it means that they have met a certain level of standards to receive national certification.
Agencies still are not currently required to be JCAHO certified.
