Kirkhof College of Nursing's Doctor of Nursing Practice degree program has received accreditation from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education that will extend through 2017.

The accreditation process included a written self-study and a three-day site visit by a CCNE evaluation team. Dean Cynthia McCurren noted that accreditation is an important achievement because students, employers and consumers are assured that KCON graduates are educated under nationally established standards that have been validated through a rigorous process. 

“This is a wonderful accomplishment and my sincere appreciation goes to the faculty who have implemented this impressive degree program and the students who have enriched its endeavors,” McCurren said.
