Nursing program awarded maximum accreditation

LINCOLN—On April 8, Union College’s nursing program received official results from the November 2005 accreditation visit of the Collegiate Commission of Nursing Education (CCNE). The program has been granted a 10-year accreditation status—the maximum possible accreditation span.
        “The program received a perfect survey with no recommendations,” said Jeff Joiner, chair of the Division of Health Sciences.
“Congratulations to the entire faculty and staff of the nursing program on the achievements and hard work reflected in this outstanding accreditation outcome,” said Malcolm Russell, vice president for academic administration.
        This is the fourth of Union’s academic programs to receive accreditation results in the last year. The education, physician assistant and social work programs all successfully completed accreditation reviews during the 2004-2005 school year.
