Re: PUBLIC NOTICE of CCNE Accreditation Visit Invitation for Third-Party Comments
Date: June 27, 2018

The Cedar Crest College (CCC) Nursing Department is preparing to host an accreditation site visit by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) for the graduate nursing program - Master of Science in Nursing, Doctor of Nursing Practice, and Post-Master Certificates. The visit is scheduled for September 5-7, 2018.

CCNE is an autonomous accrediting agency recognized by the U.S. Secretary of the Education as a national accreditation agency, contributing to the improvement of the public's health. CCNE ensures the quality and integrity of baccalaureate, graduate, and residency programs in nursing. CCNE serves the public interest by assessing and identifying programs that engage in effective educational practices. As a voluntary, self‐regulatory process, CCNE accreditation supports and encourages continuing self‐assessment by nursing programs and supports continuing growth and improvement of collegiate professional education and nurse residency programs.

In accordance with their Procedures for Accreditation of Baccalaureate and Graduate Degree Nursing Programs, CCNE provides the opportunity for program constituents (students, alumni, faculty and community stakeholders) to submit, in writing, third-party comments concerning a program’s qualifications for accreditation status. Third-party comments must relate to the CCNE Standards for Accreditation of Baccalaureate and Graduate Nursing Programs (, and must be signed and received at the CCNE offices by August 15, 2018. All third‐party comments submitted to CCNE must be written in English, consistent with CCNE’s policy on Conduct of Business in English. Any and all comments submitted to CCNE in a language other than English will not be processed. Comments are shared only with the CCNE evaluation team appointed to review CCC programs. All concerns related to the accreditation standards will be identified in the accreditation report and CCC will have an opportunity to respond to those concerns as part of its response to that report.

All comments are to be directed to:
Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education
Attn: Third-Party Comments
655 K St., NW, Suite 750
Washington, DC 20001
