The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Program at University of Cincinnati College of Nursing (UCCON) is seeking initial accreditation by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). CCNE, an autonomous accrediting entity, is recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education to accredit baccalaureate and graduate degree programs in nursing.
One of the requirements for accreditation specifies that the program notify their community constituents of the opportunity to submit “written third-party comments” to the CCNE.
Representatives of CCNE will conduct an on-site accreditation visit to the UCCON on January 9-11, 2013 for review of evidence that the DNP program meets accreditation standards.
If you have comments regarding this program you may send letters to CCNE at the address listed below until December 9, 2012. Only signed comments will be accepted by CCNE. CCNE shares third-party comments with members of the evaluation team prior to the visit, but at no time during the review process are these comments shared with the program.
Please submit comments to:
Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education
One Dupont Circle, NW
Washington, DC 20036-1120
All comments must be received by December 9, 2012.
