Finlandia Nursing Program Seeks Public Comment

HANCOCK, MI -As part of an independent accreditation process, the Finlandia University Nursing program invites the public to submit written comments about the university's Nursing program.

Finlandia's bachelor of science (B.S.N.) in nursing program is seeking program re-accreditation through the leading national accrediting agency for nursing programs, CCNE (Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education). CCNE is an autonomous agency whose goal is to assess and identify programs that demonstrate effective educational practices to ensure the quality and integrity of baccalaureate and graduate nursing education programs.

"Benefits of accreditation include independent, outside assurance that the Finlandia Nursing program graduates nurses who are well-prepared to provide quality nursing care to our community and beyond," explains Fredi deYampert, chair of the Finlandia Nursing Department.

During the accreditation process, CCNE provides the opportunity for program constituents to submit, in writing, comments concerning the Finlandia Nursing program and its value. The CCNE will accept comments from individuals and groups until September 10, 2011.

Please mail your written and signed comments to: Cristina Walcott, Administrative Assistant, Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, One Dupont Circle NW, Suite 530, Washington DC 20036-1120.
