The ACEN Appoints Dr. Marsal Stoll as CEO
Dr. Stoll comes to ACEN from the Southern Association of College and Schools Commission on Colleges (SACSCOC), where she serves as Vice President, providing executive leadership in the development and implementation of programs, policies, and procedures to aid institutions in meeting accreditation standards and improving educational programs. She also works with the SACSCOC Committees on Compliance and Reports, the Executive Council, and the Board of Trustees, and directly serves a portfolio of 85 academic institutions.
The ACEN Self-Study Forums
The ACEN Self-Study Forums continue to be highly attended by nurse administrators and faculty of accredited programs. Due to this demand, the Fall 2014 ACEN Self-Study Forum has already filled to capacity. The Spring 2015 Self-Study Forums will be held in Chicago and Atlanta, and registrations will open on July 14, 2014. Representatives from programs with an upcoming site visit or submitting a Follow-Up Report should plan to attend a Forum. Click here to learn more about the ACEN Self-Study Forums.
Compliance with the 2013 Standards and Criteria
As a reminder, the 2013 ACEN Standards and Criteria will go into effect on January 1, 2014; all ACEN-accredited nursing programs must be in compliance with the new Accreditation Standards at that time. This is of particular importance to programs with an onsite accreditation review scheduled in the Spring 2014 Cycle. All programs being reviewed in the Spring 2014 Cycle or later must utilize the 2013 ACEN Standards and Criteria in their Self-Study Reports.
