Commission on Collegiate Nursing
the department's progress report
LAKELAND, Fla. (Jan. 13, 2004) - Florida
Southern College's nursing program received a favorable evaluation
based on its continuous improvement progress report submitted to
the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). The commission
"determined that the program continues to meet all accreditation
standards," according to a letter received by Dr. Sheila Marks,
the department chair.
"We are pleased to have our efforts recognized," said Marks. "The
accreditation process has been very helpful in keeping us on track
to develop one of the best programs in the state. We work every
day on the process of quality improvement from curricular development
to internal processes. We feel confident that anyone could come
at any time to evaluate the program with the same favorable results."
The CCNE, an autonomous accrediting agency, will conduct the next
on-site evaluation of the nursing program in the spring of 2005.
