Accreditation of Bachelor of Science degree in the nursing program and the Doctorate of Nursing Practice program offered by the Beth-El College of Nursing and Health Sciences were recently approved by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, Washington, D.C.
Following an April 2010 visit, the commission granted a 10 year re-accreditation to Beth-El’s undergraduate nursing programs and a five-year initial accreditation for the doctoral program at the October meeting of the Commission’s Board. The accreditation periods are the maximum period allowed.
In a formal approval letter, the Commission noted that the Beth-El programs met its four accreditation standards and that there were no compliance concerns.
“Accreditation is an important process that ensures high standards are being met by those of us who prepare the next generation of health care providers,” Nancy Smith, dean, Beth-El College of Nursing and Health Sciences, said. “I am appreciative of the commission’s recognition of the hard work and dedication of the faculty in upholding those standards.”
