The Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) Board of Commissioners has granted initial accreditation to the master’s degree program in Nursing and to the post-graduate Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) certificate program at Utica College for five years.
The Utica College programs were reviewed under the rigorous CCNE Standards for Accreditation of Baccalaureate and Graduate Nursing Programs, and the board determined that there were no compliance concerns with respect to the key elements.
“This is a tremendous accomplishment,” said Rona Levin, professor and chair of nursing at Utica College. “These accreditations validate the college’s commitment to excellence in nursing education, and showcase the quality of our graduate nursing curricula.”
Utica College has an extensive suite of nursing programs, including a traditional bachelor of science in nursing offered on the Utica College campus where future nurses learn in the Dr. Albert and Gloria Shaheen Nursing Laboratory. This cutting-edge educational facility features a fully-equipped reproduction of a modern hospital ward with a nursing station, bedside monitoring equipment, respiration technology, and isolation rooms with state-of-the-art diagnostic and vital sign monitoring equipment.
The college also offers a wide range of high-quality online programs including an online RN to BSN; an accelerated bachelor of science in nursing (ABSN) offered at three sites: Liverpool, St. Petersburg and Miramar, Fla.; masters of science programs in family nurse practitioner, nursing education, and nursing leadership; and certificate of advanced study programs in family nurse practitioner, nursing education, and nursing leadership.
