Nursing Program Accreditation
Our nursing programs are approved by the State Board of Nursing in the state and at the campus where the program is located. Our programs are also accredited by the accreditation body for each individual campus — all are approved by the U.S. Department of Education.
Accreditation is a process of validation in which colleges, universities and other institutions of higher learning are evaluated.
The standards for accreditation are set by a peer review board whose members include faculty from various accredited colleges and universities. The board aids in the evaluation of each potential new school accreditation or the renewals of previously accredited “colleges and schools”.
In order for colleges to proceed with the accreditation process smoothly, they must meet the general standards set by the peer review accreditation boards. Each college is typically assessed using the following Nursing Board of Approval criteria:
- Overall Mission of the College
- Objectives and Goals
- Student Requirements for Admissions
- Services Available to Students
- Quality of Education
- Faculty Qualifications
School Accreditation means that each campus:
- Is recognized as a qualified institution of higher learning with approved programs of study that meet recognized academic standards
- Employs a professional staff
- Has sufficient facilities and equipment
- Is a stable and permanent fixture in the educational community
Our campuses voluntarily undergo periodic accrediting evaluations by teams of qualified examiners including subject experts and specialists in occupational education and private school administration.
