The Healthcare Learning Object Metadata Specifications and Description Document requires an update. There is a reference to the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses' (AACN) categories of credits awarded for certification activities in the description of the activityCertification subelement of the credits element. It states that "...Recommended values include: AACN Category A, AACN Category O..." However, AACN has deprecated that categorization scheme. AACN now uses Synergy CERP categories A, B, & C. Therefore, the description for the activityCertification subelement should be changed to read, in part, "... Recommended values include: Synergy CERPs A, Synergy CERPs B, Synergy CERPs C ..."
Additionally, the accreditingBody subelement of the credits element provides recommended values in the description. AACN is not included as one of them. Please add "AACN" as a recommended value in the description to match the reference to the categories in the activityCertification subelement.
