The Bachelor of Science in Nursing Completion program recently received a deficiency-free reaccreditation by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.

The Ruth S. Coleman College of Nursing conducted a self-study and received an onsite visit last September. The resulting evaluation was based upon the following standards:

  • Program Quality:  Mission and Governance
  • Program Quality:  Institutional Commitment and Resources
  • Program Quality:  Curriculum and Teaching-Learning Practices
  • Program Effectiveness:  Aggregate Student and Faculty Outcomes

In response, the CCNE Board of Commissioners acted at its April meeting to grant accreditation to the program for 10 years, extending to June 30, 2023.  

“This reaccreditation affirms the overall excellence of the Ruth S. Coleman College of Nursing,” said Kelly Dries, dean of the college. “It is a rarity for any nursing program to have a deficiency-free survey, and I congratulate the BSN Completion program faculty and College of Nursing staff for their continuous dedication to excellence in nursing education.”

The Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education is an autonomous national accrediting agency that ensures the quality and integrity of baccalaureate, graduate, and residency programs in nursing.

The Bachelor of Science in Nursing Completion program is designed for registered nurses who are looking for enhanced career opportunities, promotions, and management positions.
