Re: CCNE Calls for Third-Party Comments
Florida National University is seeking re-accreditation for the Bachelor of Science in Nursing by
the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Accreditation (CCNE).
The CCNE site visitors will be on campus September 11 to 13, 2019. In the interest of
continuous quality improvement and as required by CCNE, we would appreciate the written
input of all interested parties.
In accordance with the standards and guidelines of the CCNE, programs seeking accreditation
are required to evaluate their program according to several core standards. One of the
requirements for accreditation specifies that the program notify their community constituents of
the opportunity to submit “written third-party comments” to the CCNE. These written and
signed third-party comments will be accepted by CCNE up to 21 days (August 21, 2019)
prior to the scheduled visit.
CCNE will only accept signed comments. CCNE shares third-party comments with members of
the evaluation team prior to the visit, but at no time during the review process are these
comments shared with the program. During its review, the evaluation team will consider all
third-party comments that relate to the accreditation standards.
If you wish to provide such comments, please send them directly to:
Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education
Attn: Third-Party Comments
655 K Street NW, Suite 750
Washington, DC 20001
Thank you in advance for your cooperation.
