The College of Nursing recently had two programs earn accreditation during the 2016-17 academic year by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.
The college’s doctor of nursing practice and postgraduate advanced practice registered nurse certificate programs both were accredited for 10 years. The 10-year accreditation period is a first for both programs. The DNP program was first accredited in 2011 for five years as a new program.
As a result of the accreditation, these two programs are approved until Dec. 31, 2026.
