MacMurray nursing program earns reaccreditation
Accreditation will remain valid for 10 years.
MacMurray’s nursing program has been reaccredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), which is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education to accredit baccalaureate- and graduate-degree programs in nursing.
Dr. JoEllen Brannan, chair of the Division of Nursing, said that the program’s faculty and staff work hard to maintain the program’s quality and reaccreditation validates the curriculum, faculty, students and graduates.
The CCNE accreditation process evaluates a nursing program on its missions, goals and expected outcomes and the program’s efficacy in using resources to achieve those outcomes. The CCNE achieves this evaluation through assessing the mission and governance of an institution; student and faculty outcomes; available resources and institutional commitment to the nursing program; and teaching-learning practices and curriculum.
The MacMurray nursing program’s accreditation is valid for the next ten years. This is the longest time period the CCNE accredits and represents the CCNE’s confidence in MacMurray’s nursing program.
