The School of Nursing at Boise State is currently an applicant for accreditation through the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). The on-site evaluation of our Baccalaureate Degree program in nursing, Master’s Degree program in nursing, and Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program is scheduled for March 11 to 13, 2015.

CCNE policy requires that institutions provide an opportunity for the program’s identified communities of interest (e.g., students, alumni, faculty, employers, etc.) to provide written input into the deliberations of the evaluation team. Questions and signed third-party comments will be accepted by CCNE until February 9, 2015. You can direct questions and comments to:

Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education
Attn: Third-Party Comments
Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education
1 Dupont Circle NW, Suite 530
Washington, DC 20036

Please note that CCNE shares third-party comments only with members of the evaluation team. The evaluation team only considers third-party comments that relate to the program’s compliance with the accreditation standards. Please be aware that at no time during the review process are these comments shared with the program. However, all compliance concerns related to the accreditation standards will be identified in the accreditation report and the program will have an opportunity to respond to those concerns as part of its response to that report.

For more information on accreditation, please contact the School of Nursing at 208-426-4143.
