The Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) will conduct a reaccreditation review of The Intercollegiate Consortium for a Master of Science in Nursing (McNeese State University, Southeastern Louisiana University, University of Louisiana at Lafayette, and Nicholls State University) on March 4-6, 2013. The purpose of the accreditation review is to assess the educational program's compliance with CCNE standards.
Anyone believing that he or she has pertinent and valid information about such matters may submit, in writing, pertinent information to the CCNE. Only signed comments will be accepted by the CCNE. 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. During its review of the program, the evaluation team considers third-party comments, if any that relate to the accreditation standards and the program's qualifications for accreditation status. Written and signed third-party comments will be accepted by CCNE until February 2, 2013 and should be sent to the following address:
