Public Notice of CCNE Accreditation

Tue, 01/04/2022 - 12:54pm

The College of Nursing and Health Professions (CNHP) at The University of Southern Mississippi (USM) is undergoing a reaccreditation with the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) that will include hosting a virtual visit on March 30, 31, April 1, 2022 for the University’s Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree programs. The BSN degree programs include a traditional BSN Program and a RN to BSN Program.

One of the requirements for accreditation specifies that the program notify their community constituents of the opportunity to submit “written third-party comments” to the CCNE. The CNHP extends the invitation for colleagues, alumni, program constituents, and interested parties to submit comments concerning the College's academic programs and our qualifications for accreditation. During the review process, the CCNE evaluation team will consider all third-party comments that relate to the CCNE Standards of Accreditation of Baccalaureate and Graduate Nursing Programs.

All third-party comments must be submitted in English. Please note that comments are only shared with the CCNE evaluation team assigned to the review of the BSN programs, and at no time during the review process are these comments shared with the program. These third-party comments will be received by CCNE until 21 days before the scheduled virtual evaluation. Therefore, all third-party comments regarding the CNHP will be accepted by CCNE until March 9, 2022. Please submit comments to:
