The Self-Study

Programs applying for accreditation must prepare a Self-Study Report  to demonstrate the extent to which the program meets the Accreditation Standards and Criteria.

The process of self-study represents the combined effort of the governing organization administrators, nursing education unit administrators, faculty, staff, students, and other individuals concerned with the nursing program. All those associated with the program should participate in the self-study process. Broad participation leads to an understanding of the total program.

The Self-Study Forum

The Forums will feature the new 2017 ACEN Standards and Criteria.  Learn about the Standards and Criteria and current policies in accreditation review. Gain knowledge in systematic planning for program evaluation and assessment of outcomes. Attend program specific sessions to discuss areas of mutual interests. Participate in networking opportunities. Earn continuing education credit.
