Submitted by Centralia College
After a rigorous three-year review process, Centralia College’s Nursing program has received full accreditation from the National League of Nursing’s Commission for Nursing Education Accreditation (CNEA).
CNEA accreditation demonstrates that Centralia College’s program has successfully passed a rigorous external quality review process and ensures students receive the most effective education needed to deliver quality patient care.
The accreditation followed a three-year review process by the CNEA, which included a 75-page self-study and a virtual site visit last fall. Accreditors interviewed the college’s senior administrators, nursing faculty members, current nursing students, and alumni to confirm CC met all five standards needed for accreditation.
For the Nursing program staff, CNEA accreditation is not only deserved, but also critical for assuring students, employers, and patients CC’s nurses are the best around.
“This is a mark of quality and excellence in nursing education,” explained Anne Schuchmann, associate professor and interim director of Nursing at CC. “It provides quality assurance and lets students know they’ll receive the best training possible. It also lets the community know this is a high-performing program.”
The Centralia College Nursing program is now accepting applications for the 2022-23 academic year. Nursing is a two-year program. For more information, visit the website.
