Gadsden State Community College’s Nursing Education Department is hosting a site review for the continuing accreditation of its practical nursing program by the Accreditation Commission for Education in Nursing Sept. 28-30.
According to ACEN, accreditation indicates to the general public and to the educational community that a nursing program has clear and appropriate educational objectives and is working to achieve these objective. Emphasis is placed upon the total nursing program and its compliance with established standards and criteria in the context of its mission as well as current and future nursing practice.
In addition to a self-study report, the evaluators will review comments from others regarding the nursing program. Comments can be shared with the site visit team during a meeting scheduled at 3 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29 at the Valley Street Campus Student Center.
