On February 24-26, 2020, The baccalaureate degree program in nursing (BSN), master's degree program in nursing (MSN), Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program, and Post-Graduate APRN Certificate program at Mississippi University for Women will have an on-site accreditation review by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). As part of this process written and signed third-party comments concerning a program’s qualifications for accreditation will be accepted by CCNE until February 3, 2020.   This process provides an opportunity for program constituents and other interested parties to submit, in writing, comments concerning a program’s qualifications for accreditation.

We would like to encourage our communities of interest to use this opportunity to provide any feedback you have regarding the programs under review to CCNE. Your comments will be shared with the accreditation evaluation team. During the review of the programs, your comments will be considered by the team as they relate to compliance with accreditation standards. However, at no time during the review process are these comments shared with the programs, dean, or faculty. Communities of Interest include students, alumni, faculty and the practice community.
