SON Marks Year of Self Study, Accreditation and Program Review


The SON’s baccalaureate, master’s, PhD and continuing education programs each completed rigorous self study and external reviews over the last academic year.

As a result, the School’s baccalaureate and master’s programs were reaccredited for ten years by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). The PhD program received a positive review by UNC-CH Graduate School representatives and external reviewers from other Schools of Nursing, and the Center for Lifelong Learning was re-accredited as a provider of continuing nurse education for four years.

“I’m very proud of the collective efforts of our faculty, staff, and students who came together for a successful year of programmatic self study, external review and accreditation,” said Dean Kristen M. Swanson. “It is a worthwhile pursuit to thoughtfully assess how well our actions measure up to our vision, and to identify ways to take that vision further.”
