The University of Wisconsin-Green Bay learned recently that a comprehensive review of its undergraduate and graduate programs in Nursing has resulted in maximum accreditations from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education.
The CCNE, a national nursing accreditation agency officially recognized by the US Secretary of Education, evaluated both UW-Green Bay’s longstanding Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) and relatively new Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree programs. The University received confirmation in November that its BSN program was re-accredited for the maximum 10-year period, through 2025, and that the MSN was accredited for the maximum five-year period for new programs. Each program met all accreditation standards and had no compliance concerns.
“Specialized accreditation speaks to the high level of quality in the UW-Green Bay nursing programs and well-qualified faculty,” says Prof. Susan Gallagher-Lepak, RN, PhD, who chairs and directs the University’s Nursing programs. “This ‘seal of approval’ from CCNE helps students to know that they will receive an excellent education at UW-Green Bay.”
