Nursing school gains national accreditation

Posted June 10, 2015

Abilene Christian University’s nursing program has received national accreditation by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).

The ACU School of Nursing, launched in 2013, offers a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (B.S.N.) degree. The program is approved by the Texas Board of Nursing, and graduates are eligible to take the National Council Licensure Examination for Registered Nurses (NCLEX-RN). ACU’s first class of nursing students graduated in May.

Officially recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education as a national accreditation agency, the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) is an autonomous accrediting agency, contributing to the improvement of the public's health. CCNE ensures the quality and integrity of baccalaureate, graduate, and residency programs in nursing.
