A Message from the President

February 26, 2020

I know that we don’t have their final determination; but I wanted to express my deep appreciation for the work of the entire faculty and staff of the School of Nursing in developing the document, preparing for, and being so engagingly present to the visitors from CCNE.  I found the team open and seeking to help us be the best version of ourselves.  I know their standards are high; but clearly you not only rose to them; but greatly exceeded them.  I was proud, grateful, and stood in awe of the fine work you all did.
