Public Notice of CCNE AccreditationThe Nicole Wertheim College of Nursing and Health Sciences (NWCNHS) at Florida International University (FIU) is undergoing a reaccreditation with the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) that will include an on site visit from November 16 - 18, 2022 for the Bachelor of Science in Nursing and Master of Science in Nursing degree programs, as well as the Post-graduate Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN )certificate programs.
One of the requirements during this process is that the program notify their community constituents of the opportunity to submit “written third-party comments” to the CCNE. The FIU NWCNHS extends the invitation for students, alumni, faculty, colleagues, other program constituents, the practice community, and interested parties to submit comments concerning the aforementioned academic programs and our qualifications for accreditation, such as quality and satisfaction of the same. All third-party comments submitted to CCNE must be written in English, consistent with CCNE's policy on Conduct of Business in English and only signed comments are accepted by CCNE. During the review process, the CCNE evaluation team will consider all third-party comments that relate to the CCNE Standards of Accreditation of Baccalaureate and Graduate Nursing Programs.
Please note that comments are only shared with the CCNE evaluation team assigned to the review of the Undergraduate and Graduate Nursing programs, and at no time during the review process are these comments shared with the programs. These third-party comments will be received by CCNE until 21 days before the scheduled on-site evaluation visit. Therefore, all third-party comments regarding the FIU NWCNHS Nursing programs will be accepted by CCNE until October 25, 2022.
If you would like to submit a third-party comment for a program currently under review, please submit to Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) to firstname.lastname@example.org.
