UMKC Nursing and Health Studies: CCNE Accredited for Another Decade

The UMKC School of Nursing and Health Studies’ national accreditation has been renewed for 10 years, through June 2029.

Joy Roberts, interim dean, said, “This full accreditation means that the school’s BSN, MSN, DNP and post-MSN certificate programs meet or exceed standards accepted by nursing education programs throughout the country. This gold standard of approval indicates the high quality of our nursing education.”

The school received the good news from the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education, a national accreditation agency recognized by the U.S. Department of Education. The commission reviews undergraduate, graduate and residency programs in nursing under a voluntary, self-regulatory peer review.
