HAMMOND – The Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) will conduct
an initial accreditation review of the doctor of nursing practice program offered
by Southeastern Louisiana University.
The review -- to be conducted Sept. 12-14 -- is intended to assess the educational program’s compliance with CCNE standards.
Federal regulations require that accrediting agencies allow for public comment on the qualifications of institutions or programs under consideration for continuing accreditation, according to CCNE.
Individuals with pertinent and valid information about the program are invited to submit their comments in writing to CCNE at least 30 days before the review that will commence Sept. 12. Only signed comments will be accepted by the agency.
CCNE shares third-party comments with members of the evaluation team prior to the visit, but at no time during the review process are these comments shared with the program. During its review of the program, the evaluation team considers third-party comments, if any relate to the accreditation standards and the program’s qualifications for accreditation status.
Information should be sent 30 days before the visit begins to the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, Attention: Third-Party Comments, at 665 K St., Suite 750, Washington, DC 20001. Third party comments can also be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
