Master of Science in Nursing
Upcoming Reaccreditation Visit
The Elms College School of Nursing wishes to notify you of our upcoming reaccreditation visit for the Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) program by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) on November 17-19, 2014.
The CCNE accreditation process directs institutions to provide an opportunity for the program’s communities of interest to provide third-party comments directly to the CCNE evaluation team. Written and signed third-party comments will be accepted by CCNE until October 17, 2014 at the address provided below. Communicating directly with the CCNE evaluation team is an opportunity to provide feedback about the MSN program, our students, graduates, faculty, or any other components of the School of Nursing as they relate to the CCNE accreditation standards.
Please note that CCNE shares third-party comments only with members of the evaluation team, and the team only considers third-party comments that relate to the program’s compliance with the accreditation standards. Your comments, or any questions related to the process, should be communicated directly to Ms. Victoria Mansfield, Accreditation Coordinator, at the address below no later than October 17, 2014. Your remarks will be communicated to the CCNE evaluation team, but at no time will they be shared with the Elms College School of Nursing, so confidentiality is assured.
Thank you for your continued support of the Elms College School of Nursing. If you have any questions related to the described process, please contact Ms. Victoria Mansfield.
