Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education asking for feedback on nursing department
Salve Regina’s Rodgers Family Department of Nursing will undergo a comprehensive evaluation visit October 20-22, 2021 by a team representing the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). The team will be tasked with evaluating the University’s master’s (MSN) and doctoral (DNP) programs, both of which have been accredited by the commission since 2016.
Officially recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education as a national accreditation agency, CCNE is an autonomous accrediting agency, contributing to the improvement of the public’s health. CCNE serves the public interest by assessing and identifying programs that engage in effective educational practices. As a voluntary, self-regulatory process, CCNE accreditation supports and encourages continuing self-assessment by nursing programs and supports continuing growth and improvement of collegiate professional education programs.
As part of the evaluation process, CCNE provides the opportunity for program constituents and other interested parties to submit, in writing, third-party comments concerning Salve Regina’s MSN and DNP programs. The third-party comments should relate to the CCNE Standards for Accreditation of Baccalaureate and Graduate Nursing Programs (2018).
CCNE shares third-party comments with members of the evaluation team prior to the visit, but at no time during the review process are these comments shared with the program. All third-party comments submitted to CCNE must be written in English, consistent with CCNE’s policy on Conduct of Business in English. Only signed comments are accepted, and public comments must be directed to email@example.com.
Written third-party comments must be received by CCNE no later than September 29, 2021 for consideration.
