Accreditation

The Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) Board of Commissioners acted at its meeting on October 10-12, 2013 to grant accreditation of the baccalaureate and Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree programs in Nursing at Wayne State University for a term of 10 years, extending to December 31, 2023, and to the master's programs in nursing for a term of 5 years, extending to December 31, 2018. The next on-site evaluation for the baccalaureate and DNP programs will take place in the spring of 2023. The next on-site evaluation for the master's programs will take place in the spring of 2018.

At this meeting, the CCNE Board determined that both programs met all four accreditation standards. The Board additionally determined that there were no compliance concerns with respect to the key elements.

As is required for all accredited programs, the Board requested that the programs submit a continuous improvement report at the mid-point of the accreditation term. That report should address the nursing programs’ continued compliance with all accreditation standards.

Programs are expected to continue to comply with the CCNE standards and procedures throughout the period of accreditation. This includes advising CCNE in the event of any substantive change in nursing programs or of any major organizational changes that may affect the programs administration, scope or quality.
