McNeese Nursing BSN Program Receives Continuing Accreditation

McNeese Nursing BSN Program Receives Continuing Accreditation

(June 2, 2017) The McNeese State University College of Nursing and Health Professions’ baccalaureate nursing degree program has been granted continuing accreditation by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) following an extensive review process that culminated with a campus site visit last fall by CCNE evaluators, according to Dr. Peggy Wolfe, dean of the college.

The CCNE - the accrediting body of the American Association of Colleges of Nursing – officially accredited McNeese’s baccalaureate nursing program at its spring meeting in April and the accreditation runs through 2027.

“Accreditation ensures a nursing program’s curriculum meets strict national standards and assures the public that the nursing program meets the quality and commitment toward these high standards,” said Wolfe. “This accreditation highlights our commitment to quality nursing education.”
Wolfe explained that during the evaluation process CCNE site visitors examine every aspect of an institution’s nursing education programs, including mission and governance, institutional commitment and resources, curriculum and teaching-learning practices, and assessment and achievement of program outcomes.
 “This accreditation demonstrates that our approach here at McNeese, which combines technology and competency-based learning with comprehensive clinical experience offered by a highly qualified faculty, produces nursing graduates who are well prepared to fulfill their roles in patient care, nurse education and leadership roles,” explained. Wolfe. “The McNeese College of Nursing and Health Professions offers a nursing program designed to meet the needs of the health care industry today.”

Both McNeese’s Bachelor of Science and Master of Science degrees in nursing are accredited by CCNE. More information about the CCNE is available at
