STU’s Nursing Program earns accreditation from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education

By June 20, 2018STU News

After a rigorous review of the program, St. Thomas University’s Nursing Program has received full accreditation from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE), a national nursing accrediting agency that is recognized by the U.S. Department of Education.

This accreditation includes the baccalaureate degree programs in Nursing (BSN and RN-to-BSN), and master’s degree program in Nursing (MSN – Family Nurse Practitioner). Attaining this national accreditation positions St. Thomas University as a leader in the Southeast, for just like nursing professionals, we seek to infuse the world with compassion and faith.

“Nursing is a high demand career in South Florida, and across the nation there is a shortage of nurses,” said Luis C. Fernandez Torres, interim dean of the School of Science. “St. Thomas University is stepping up to fill that void with competitive Nursing program offerings attractive to our community, and also to the Southeast region through STU Online.”

Professors Adline Dormeus, Magdaleina Joseph, and Andre Menyonga; former School of Science Dean Adrienne Vynne; former Associate Dean of Nursing Marie-Bernard Lazare; and all of the nursing faculty adjuncts and staff were integral throughout the accreditation process and expect to see the nursing program grow.

Professionally accredited programs, open many doors for students, as well access to advanced degrees.
