Enhance your credentials when you achieve the only certification developed and endorsed by The Joint Commission and Joint Commission Resources (JCR).
Your CJCP represents the highest level of accreditation knowledge and achievement in related patient safety and quality issues. This year, hundreds of your peers are preparing for and taking the CJCP examination. Those who pass will be CJCP certified for three years and enjoy recognition for their accomplishment.
During 2016, The Joint Commission announced the deletion of some of its hospital requirements as part of its Project REFRESH. Also during this time, The Joint Commission announced its adoption of the 2017 Life Safety Code, pursuant to the CMS adoption. It is important to note that the CJCP exam was comprehensively reviewed and updated for 2017 to reflect these new changes.
If you have any questions about the CJCP examination, please contact us at email@example.com.
The CJCP Candidate Handbook posted was published on July 15, 2016. While still an excellent resource, this Handbook is currently being revised to reflect 2017 updates. While the majority of this handbook will remain current; please keep in mind that other sections are in the process of being updated such as the passing point study, passing point score, and frequently asked questions (to name a few). The latest copy of this Handbook is expected for posting in late March, 2017. We encourage you to check this website in order to download the latest copy when it is available.
