ACCREDITATION RENEWED FOR ASSOCIATE NURSING DEGREE
The Connecticut Department of Public Health’s Board of Examiners for Nursing has announced its renewal of the accreditation of Goodwin College’s program for the associate degree in Nursing. This process, which is conducted every five years, includes a self-study of 17 different criteria and regulations that all pre-licensure nursing programs are required to address. It also includes an appearance before the Board to answer any additional questions and is in addition to accreditation by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN). The next ACEN renewal will take place in 2018 and the next State renewal in 2019. Congratulations to all who took part in this study!
