The Bachelor of Science in Nursing at The American Women’s College of Bay Path University is a new applicant pursuing initial accreditation by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), One Dupont Circle NW, Ste. 530, Washington, DC 20036, (202) 887-6791. New applicant status is neither a status of accreditation nor a guarantee that accreditation will be granted.
The American Women’s College at Bay Path University will be hosting an initial accreditation site visit conducted by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) for its fully online RN to BSN Nursing Program on February 27, 28 and March 1, 2017. CCNE guidelines require that institutions seeking accreditation give opportunities for their communities of interest, including current students, alumni, nursing faculty, potential employers of graduates, members of the university community, local and state nursing professional organizations, and practicing nurses, to provide written and signed comments to CCNE regarding the program’s qualifications for accreditation status. Comments concerning the program’s qualification for accreditation status will be accepted by CCNE until February 6, 2017.
CCNE will share written and signed comments with members of the on-site evaluation team, who will consider them as they conduct their review of the RN to BSN Program. At no time during the review process will the comments be shared with faculty or administrators in the RN to BSN Nursing Program.
Written and signed comments may be submitted to:
