MBU School of Nursing receives CCNE accreditation
Missouri Baptist University’s School of Nursing received the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education accreditation for its baccalaureate degrees for the next five years.
Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) is the national nursing accreditation agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education. The autonomous accrediting agency ensures the quality and integrity of baccalaureate, graduate, and residency programs in nursing, contributing to the improvement of the public’s health.
The University received the maximum accreditation for an initial program, and also has initial approval by the Missouri State Board of Nursing.
“Receiving CCNE accreditation is an indicator of the quality of our School of Nursing programs,” said Dr. Amber Pyatt, MBU’s founding dean and associate professor of nursing. “It shows that MBU meets the rigorous standards set for programs in nursing. Having this accreditation will allow students to demonstrate the quality of the program in the nursing community and assist them as they move forward in their education.”
The School of Nursing currently offers three programs:
• BSN (pre-licensure)
• RN to BSN (online)
• Pre-Nursing (online and on-ground)
The baccalaureate degree program in nursing at Missouri Baptist University is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (http://www.ccneaccreditation.org).
