Gearing up for Fall and National Reaccreditation
Tuesday, September 16, 2008The faculty and staff of Nursing Science will welcome site visitors from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) Nov. 4-6.
The previous accreditation visit took place in 2003, with accreditation awarded in May 2004.
Officially recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education as a national accreditation agency, CCNE is an autonomous accrediting agency contributing to the improvement of the public's health. CCNE ensures the quality and integrity of baccalaureate and graduate education programs preparing effective nurses.
CCNE serves the public interest by assessing and identifying programs that engage in effective educational practices. As a voluntary, self-regulatory process, CCNE accreditation supports and encourages continuing self-assessment by nursing education programs and the continuing growth and improvement of collegiate professional education.
Nursing Science is excited to welcome new faculty:
- Nancy Kollmann
- Keith Rischer
- Melinda Hiemenz
- Elizabeth Krauss
A few other new faces will greet students as they return this fall:
- Steve C. Olson, Interim Student Services Coordinator
- Kim Scott, Clinical Learning Lab Coordinator
- Sue Burnett-Pick, Office Manager
Everyone has worked hard during the summer months to keep our programs strong and thriving.
