A Re-Accreditation for the University of Phoenix College of Nursing
February 1st, 2011
Individuals with an interest in pursuing a nursing degree from the University of Phoenix may be interested to know that the institution has achieved re-accreditation.
The university’s College of Nursing was re-accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) for 10 years – the maximum amount of time allowed. To school officials, this validation reflects the agency’s satisfaction and confidence in the institution’s program.
It is the responsibility of the national accreditation agency, CCNE, to assess bachelor and graduate nursing programs and ensure that they serve the public interest with effective educational practices.
Pam Fuller, dean of the College of Nursing, says that CCNE accreditation is an “important national evaluation of program quality that students, alumni and the public-at-large can rely upon for assurance” that a degree from the University of Phoenix can be viewed with “credibility and respect.”
According to university officials, the institution graduates more post-licensure nurses on an annual basis than any other program in the country. In addition to its goal of developing leaders with excellent communication and critical thinking skills, the school works to address the nation’s shortage of healthcare workers.
