Third-Party Comments for Current Accreditation Reviews

The RN to BSN program at NC Wesleyan College will host an accreditation visit by the Commission of Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) on September 22, 2021. This is an evaluation of our RN to BSN curriculum and involves a virtual visit (due to COVID-19) with a follow-up, on-site visit within two years.

In accordance with CCNE’s procedures, the Commission provides the opportunity for program constituents and other interested parties to submit, in writing, third-party comments concerning a program’s qualifications for accreditation.

At least 2 months before the scheduled on-site evaluation, the program must notify its major constituents, including, at a minimum, educators/nursing faculty teaching and students/residents enrolled in the program(s) under review, that an accreditation review is scheduled. For nurse residency programs, the healthcare organization’s nursing leadership must also be notified. The form of such notice is at the discretion of the program, but it should include the name of CCNE, the last date of submission, and instructions for submitting comments to CCNE. For example, the program may notify educators/nursing faculty and students/residents via email or newsletter and notify other program constituents and interested parties via other means (e.g., the program website, the institution’s newspaper, and/or email notification).
