Luther's nursing program undergoes regular review by outside experts in the nursing field.
The Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) is an autonomous accrediting agency, contributing to the improvement of the public’s health. A specialized/professional accrediting agency, CCNE strives to promote the quality and integrity of baccalaureate and graduate nursing programs. The baccalaureate degree in nursing at Luther College is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education. Contact information for CCNE: 655 K Street, NW, Suite 750, Washington, DC 20001. Telephone: 202-887-6791.
The Luther Department of Nursing is hosting our Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE) accreditation visit for evaluation of the program on October 26-28, 2022. This is a time for external nursing administrators outside of our college, program, and region to evaluate our program, using the Essentials for Nursing Education (2021) and CCNE standards (2018) as guides. The Luther nursing faculty are writing a self-study for CCNE to review in advance of the visit.
Part of their evaluation seeks voluntary input from third-party constituent faculty and students who interact with the nursing program. You may choose to submit an independent letter directly to CCNE regarding the accreditation of the program. Comments by any third-party faculty or students should be received by CCNE by October 1, 2022. All comments should be directed to CCNE and emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
