The Walla Walla University School of Nursing accreditation by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing (ACEN) has been extended.
The ACEN did not fault School of Nursing curriculum, quality, or outcomes. The initial denial of continued accreditation was issued when the university failed to meet one standard for graduate degree credentialing of School of Nursing instructors. That standard is that all WWU School of Nursing faculty members must possess a master's degree.
An ACEN site visit is scheduled for February 2015. The site visit will include a full self-study and will allow the ACEN to verify that the university is in compliance with all accreditation requirements.
