Lakeland RN to BSN program receives accreditation
Lakeland University learned on November 12, 2021, that its RN to BSN Completion Program had received accreditation from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).
The accreditation status began March 17, 2021, and continues through Dec. 31, 2026.
"It is gratifying to know that Lakeland's RN to BSN Completion Program meets all the CCNE nursing accreditation standards, a sign of excellence in nursing education,” said Program Director Kerry Hamm. “The RN to BSN program launched in the fall of 2019 and has worked toward CCNE accreditation since its inception. Countless hours and many contributors had a stake in the process, and we are proud to illustrate our dedication to quality nursing education through accreditation.”
The CCNE is an autonomous accrediting agency that serves the public interest by promoting the quality and integrity of baccalaureate, graduate and residency programs in nursing.
The accreditation process is voluntary, and the accreditation award is a testament to programs that engage in effective educational practices. Accredited programs are dedicated to achieving their mission, vision and goals and foster continuous improvement in nursing education, and, thereby, in professional practice
The baccalaureate degree program in nursing is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (http://www.ccneaccreditation.org).
