Opportunity to comment: Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) Program at Spring Hill College

In fall 2013, the Spring Hill College Division of Nursing will seek to continue national accreditation of our Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) program from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). 

The CCNE, which is recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education, will perform an on-site evaluation for continuing accreditation of the College’s BSN program on November 6-8, 2013.

The CCNE, using a continuous quality improvement approach, evaluates the effectiveness and quality of nursing programs based on standards related to the following four areas:

  1. Mission and Governance
  2. Institutional Commitment and Resources
  3. Curriculum and Teaching-Learning Practices
  4. Student Performance and Faculty Accomplishments

The Division of Nursing invites you, as a member of the BSN program’s constituency and community of interest, to submit comments to the CCNE. Written and signed third party comments will be accepted until October 7, 2013 via mail or email. Please direct your comments to Catherine Sneed at csneed@accn.nche.edu or the following address:
