The Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) Board of Commissioners acted at its meeting on October 3, 2003 to grant accreditation of the baccalaureate and master’s degree programs in Nursing at Wayne State University for a term of 10 years, extending to December 31, 2013. The next on-site evaluation will take place in the spring of 2013.
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. The deadline for submitting the progress report to CCNE is December 31, 2008. The Report Review Committee, and then the Board of Commissioners, will review the progress report in the spring of 2009.
A copy of the accreditation report, and the Wayne State University College of Nursing response to it, has been transmitted to the institution’s chief executive officer as the Commission’s official report to Wayne State University.
The CCNE acted at its meeting on April 14-16, 2011, to grant accreditation to the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program at Wayne State University for the term of 5 years, extending to June 30, 2016. The accreditation action is effective as of October 6, 2010.
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.
