Northwest Nazarene University’s Academic Dean and Vice President for Academic Affairs Dr. Burton Webb is pleased to announce that the University’s master of science in nursing has now received accreditation by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).

In April, the CCNE Board determined that the master’s degree program met all four accreditation standards: mission and governance; institutional commitment and resources; curriculum and teaching-learning practices; program effectiveness. This accreditation is for a five-year term that extends to June 30, 2016, and marks the seventh graduate discipline to be accredited at the University.

“For NNU to receive this accreditation is a strong affirmation of the excellent work our graduate faculty have done to facilitate the continued development of excellence in the nursing profession,” said Dr. Webb.

Dr. Pat Kissell, dean of NNU’s School of Nursing and Health Sciences, stated, “Since the CCNE accreditation visit last October, we have been patiently awaiting the day we receive official notification of accreditation for the new master’s in nursing. Students graduating with this degree are assured that the program has met the high standards of the CCNE.” The first graduating class of eight students in the MSN program participated in commencement ceremonies earlier this month.
