Mountain Measurement, Inc. has published a new article titled, "What is Accreditation and Why It is Important to you?" written by Cathy Dearman, the first in a series of articles on nursing accreditation.
Mountain Measurement, Inc. has published an article titled "What is Accreditation and Why It is Important to you?" on the NCLEX Program Reports Professional Development Seminars website. The article was written by Cathy Dearman, whose experience with nursing accreditation includes serving as a CCNE and Southern Regional Education Board evaluator. This is the first article in a series about nursing accreditation.
Cathy’s article defines accreditation, delineates the difference between institutional and professional accreditation, explains the importance of accreditation, provides a description of higher education accreditation in the US, and introduces the accreditation programs in nursing. Although the article is targeted to faculty members who are new to accreditation, experienced educators will likely gain new insights from the article.
The next article in the series on nursing accreditation will pertain to CCNE accreditation and is scheduled for publication in early March.
