The Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), recognized by the Department of Education, assesses the quality and integrity of nursing programs. The CCNE is an independent organization that serves to ensure the quality and integrity of baccalaureate, graduate and nursing residency programs. Self-assessment of nursing programs is encouraged to promote internal growth, while the CCNE’s peer review process holds member nursing programs accountable to all interested parties. To be accredited by the CCNE, the mission, goals, resources and integrity of the program must be analyzed and approved.
The following programs in the College of Nursing and Health Care Professions are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education:
