Accreditation

Accreditation

Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE)

The baccalaureate degree programs in nursing and master’s degree programs in nursing at Texas A&M University College of Nursing are accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. Officially recognized by the US Secretary of Education as a national accreditation agency, CCNE contributes to the improvement of the public’s health by ensuring the quality and integrity of baccalaureate, graduate and residency programs in nursing.

The Texas A&M College of Nursing received its initial 5-year accreditation of the baccalaureate program in 2009, followed by reaccreditation in 2014. The initial 5-year accreditation of the master’s degree program was awarded in 2015.

The 2020 reaccreditation of the College of Nursing’s baccalaureate and master’s degree programs is officially underway, a process that includes a structured self-study evaluation and on-site visits designed to further engage faculty, staff and students in offering the best nursing education possible.
