NIBHQ Standards And Guidelines For Practices

Central to the NIBHQ practice accreditation program are our nationally recognized, professionally developed standards. All NIBHQ practice standards comprise common elements, but the practice standards for each profession contain specific requirements for accreditation.

The standards are approved by the NIBHQ Board of Directors and are reviewed every four years. The review and revision process includes input from the various practice disciplines and other stakeholders.

NIBHQ rules requires that any proposed revision to standards will be posted on the NIBHQ website at least 60 days prior to adoption. Interested parties and the public will be able to comment on any proposed revisions to standard.
