Wichita, Kansas – The accreditation for Southwestern College’s RN to BSN program will be good for another 10 years.
The Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) accredited the nursing program in September 2014. After its on-site evaluation, the CCNE Board found the program met all four accreditation standards and there were no compliance concerns.
“Being recognized by CCNE as having an outstanding nursing program that is in compliance with all regulations is extremely important,” said Amber Pyatt, director of the RN to BSN program. “I am very happy to receive notification that our program was approved for another 10 years by CCNE. There is a lot of hard work and effort that is put in by all members of an institution for an accreditation site visit. It is reassuring to know that all of the hard work paid off in the end.”
The RN to BSN program offers flexible, six-week online classes to registered nurses looking to earn their Bachelor of Science in Nursing degree. Leaners can complete their degree in as few as 14 months.
Another on-site evaluation for accreditation will take place in the fall of 2024 by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, One Dupont Cir., NW, Suite 530, Washington DC 20036, phone - 202-887-6791. http://www.aacn.nche.edu/ccne-accreditation.
