Just for Fun

All AACVPR-certified programs are sent a certificate of accreditation. Here are some fun ways to display that certificate in your facility:

  • Hang your certificate in a nice frame in the front entrance, lobby or waiting area of your program’s facility. Don’t hide it in an administrative office or staff room – it deserves to be seen!
  • Place your certificate in the front of a shadow box, then add mementos and items that celebrate your program’s success. Some examples include thank-you letters from patients, articles about your program in the local newspaper, photos of your staff or patients, etc. 
  • Pin your framed certificate to a bulletin board, then ask patients and staff to stick notes around it that explain their favorite thing about your program and what makes it exceptional enough to be AACVPR certified.
