The Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) has reaffirmed accreditation
for the King College School of Nursing. This announcement follows an on-site, regularly scheduled, evaluation process that
took place in March 2012.
“We are pleased with the outcome of the evaluation.” said Dr. Johanne Quinn, dean
and professor for King’s School of Nursing. “We received a letter from the CCNE stating
King College’s School of Nursing has again received accreditation. We are required
to do a five-year interim evaluation in 2017, similar to what the Southern Association
of Colleges and Schools (SACS) requires. Otherwise, our next regularly scheduled
evaluation for these current programs by the CCNE will be in 2022.”
King’s School of Nursing is a quality program with a holistic philosophy that promotes
caring relationships and critical thinking. Degree programs offered include Bachelor
of Science in Nursing (BSN), Bachelor of Science in Nursing for Registered Nurses
(RN-BSN), and Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) with a choice of concentrations including
Nursing Administration, combined Nursing Administration/Master of Business Administration
(MSN/MBA), Nursing Education, Family Nurse Practitioner, or Clinical Nurse Specialist.
The Clinical Nurse Specialist concentration will be retired at the end of Dec. 2012.
“What students find at King’s School of Nursing is an approach that works,” said Dr.
Quinn. “Through fall 2012, a total of 2,007 students have come through the School
of Nursing, including 647 BSN; 1,174 RN-BSN; and 186 MSN students. Most of our nursing
graduates are recruited for key positions before they graduate, many receiving offers
from their first-choice employer.”
King’s School of Nursing first received accreditation through the CCNE in the year
2000 for its BSN program. Through regularly scheduled evaluations, the CCNE again
evaluated the program in 2005. In 2007, the CCNE assessed and accredited King’s MSN
As described on the CCNE’s website, the CCNE is an autonomous accrediting agency,
contributing to the improvement of the public's health. The Commission ensures the
quality and integrity of baccalaureate, graduate, and residency programs in nursing.
The Commission 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 post-baccalaureate nurse residency programs. CCNE accreditation is a nongovernmental
peer review process that operates in accordance with nationally recognized standards
established for the practice of accreditation in the United States.
