MSN Program has successful CCNE Re-Accreditation Review

Congratulations to the Master of Science in Nursing Leadership and Management (MSN) faculty and staff for the completion of a successful three-day accreditation site visit from the Commission of Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). Three CCNE site visitors from South Dakota, Maryland and New York state were on the University of Wisconsin-Green Bay campus Feb. 26-28, 2020, to review the program, facilities and curriculum, and to meet with related faculty and staff, students, practicum site mentors and community stakeholders. Prior to the visit, the MSN Chair, Janet Reilly, and NHSU Chair, Christine Vandenhouten, prepared a 70-page self-study document with digital links to supporting evidence of the quality in the MSN program in four areas: Standard I: Mission & Governance, Standard II: Institutional Commitment and Resources, Standard III: Curriculum and Teaching-Learning Practices and Standard IV: Assessment and Achievement of Program Outcomes. All four standards were met; however, during the exit interview, the CCNE team noted concerns regarding resources for the MSN program. A plan to address these concerns will be developed and implemented. Thanks are extended to everyone who welcomed and met with the CCNE team during their time on campus!
