Nursing Programs Awarded 10-Year Accreditation
The baccalaureate and master´s programs in nursing at Immaculata University has been awarded accreditation by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), One Dupont Circle, NW, Suite 530, Washington, D.C., 20036, (202) 887-6791. The Division of Nursing´s programs were previously accredited by CCNE, and their accreditation has now been renewed for 10 years.
Earning accreditation lends greater legitimacy and prestige to the degrees the Division of Nursing offers: a Master of Science in Nursing and a Bachelor of Science in Nursing, which includes a pre-licensure program and an R.N. to B.S.N. program. CCNE´s accreditation provides an unbiased confirmation that Immaculata´s nursing programs meet expectations to adequately prepare individuals for professional practice, lifelong learning, and graduate education.
Officially recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education as a national accreditation agency, CCNE is dedicated to ensuring the quality and integrity of baccalaureate and graduate programs in nursing. CCNE contributes to public health by assessing programs, identifying those with effective educational practices, and encouraging the programs to continue conducting self-assessments.
"The Division of Nursing is proud of our reaccreditation by CCNE for a period of 10 years. This peer review evaluation demonstrates the high quality of the nursing programs offered at Immaculata," commented Margaret Lacey, Ph.D., nursing professor and chair of the Division of Nursing.
Immaculata University is a residential, Catholic, coeducational institution of higher education, located on the Main Line between Malvern and Exton, 20 miles west of Philadelphia.
