College’s Master’s in Nursing Recieves Accreditation


February 8th, 2011

Chamberlain College of Nursing’s master of science in nursing (MSN) degree program has been accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE).

The college introduced the nursing program in 2009 due to a growing need for professionals to fill advanced roles in education and administration.

Practicing nurses who choose to pursue the degree will receive an advanced education that can serve them on their path to becoming leaders in the healthcare field. The program makes two specialty tracks – education and executive – available to students.

CCNE’s purpose as a national, autonomous accrediting agency is to assess the quality and integrity of nursing programs at the baccalaureate, graduate and residency levels.

According to Dr. Gail Baumlein, director and dean of the institution’s MSN degree programs, she and her fellow school officials are “honored” by the recognition. “Chamberlain remains committed to providing excellence in nursing education, and will continue to place emphasis on maintaining high academic standards,” she says.

Chamberlain College’s MSN program was evaluated and granted accreditation for five years by CCNE.
