UB nursing programs receive 10-year accreditation

Published November 28, 2017

The School of Nursing’s baccalaureate, master’s, doctor of nursing practice, and post-graduate advanced practice registered nurse certificate programs have been granted a full 10-year accreditation from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).

During the accreditation process, CCNE visitors examined the quality and integrity of the nursing programs at the School of Nursing. All standards were met with no compliance concerns.

Officially recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education as a national accreditation agency, CCNE is an autonomous accrediting body, evaluating the quality and integrity of baccalaureate, graduate and residency programs in nursing according to nationally recognized standards. This rigorous process focuses on program quality, mission and governance, resources, curriculum and program outcomes.

“The UB School of Nursing is committed to providing our students with an exemplary education to prepare our graduates to lead in research, education, practice and service. Receiving reaccreditation for the maximum 10-year period is a testimony to the strength of our academic programs,” says Dean Marsha L. Lewis.

The accreditation is effective through March 2027.
