MOUNT VERNON, Ohio — The nursing program in the Mount Vernon Nazarene University School of Nursing and Health Sciences will be hosting a Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) accreditation site visit on February 12-14, 2024. This visit is part of the process for seeking continuing nursing professional accreditation through the CCNE for the Traditional and RN to BS undergraduate nursing degrees.
CCNE is an autonomous accrediting agency, which accredits baccalaureate, graduate, and residency programs in nursing through a nongovernmental peer review process. The intent of the accreditation process is to hold nursing programs accountable to their communities of interest, evaluate how successful a program is in achieving established goals appropriate for the preparation of professional nurses, assess the extent to which accreditation standards are being met, and foster continuing improvement in nursing programs. CCNE also informs the public of the purposes and values of accreditation and identifies nursing programs that meet accreditation standards.
Prior to the accreditation site visit, schools are required to provide communities of interest with an opportunity to provide third-party comments directly to the CCNE. Third-party comments are accepted up to 30 days before the start of the on-site evaluation. Third-party comments are shared with members of the evaluation team only. At no time during the review process are comments shared with the program. All comments are to be directed to email@example.com.
