The University at Buffalo School of Nursing is pleased to announce that its baccalaureate, master’s, doctor of nursing practice and post-graduate advanced practice registered nurse certificate programs have been granted a full 10-year accreditation from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). During the accreditation process, CCNE visitors examined the quality and integrity of the nursing programs at the school.
Officially recognized by the U.S. Secretary of Education as a national accreditation agency, CCNE is an autonomous accrediting body, evaluating the quality and integrity of baccalaureate, graduate and residency programs in nursing according to nationally recognized standards. This rigorous process focuses on program quality, mission and governance, resources, curriculum, and program outcomes.
UB School of Nursing has met all standards with no compliance concerns.
“UB School of Nursing is committed to providing our students with an exemplary education to prepare our graduates to lead in research, education, practice and service. Receiving re-accreditation for the maximum 10-year period is a testimony to the strength of our academic programs,” says Dean Marsha L. Lewis.
The School of Nursing's accreditation is effective through March 2027.
